Cladistics Explained …

From a blog comment by blog reader “wholething” on The Ace of Clades blog on the Freethought Blogs network.

  • All apes are monkeys but not all monkeys are apes.
  • All monkeys are vertebrates but not all vertebrates are monkeys.
  • All mammals are fish but not all fish are mammals, where mammals are fish that are evolved to be specialized to live on land (or in water) and breathe air.
  • All cladistics is fun but not all fun is cladistics.
