A lot of the newer taxonomic modifications being made are the result of one of two things:

1) Critiques of 'subspecies'

2) Use of newer techniques- Molecular studies versus morphological studies

Speaking of which, do you (WW) think molecular studies alone are enough to justify some recent taxonomic results? Would a combination of morphological and molecular be better or would morphological be a 'waste' of time?
