David, I also was surprised that the editors of ABT would print such a
flimsy response from the authors. They also tried to defend their
classification of fungi (and  I think bacteria) as plants, while noting
that "some people like to" classify them in other kingdoms. This really
is a case where editorial and scientific responsibility supersede the
"right" of authors to self-expression.
