Am I missing something or does anyone else think this is a basic
problem with not being able to say anything about the relative
cladistic branching pattern of a three taxon statement? That
is, without using rocks for an outgroup, and assuming each
of these is more or less a cohesive group itself (which may
not be true, for all I know).

Just curious,

Doug
