Hi there,

::I would recommend you read the primary literature on this rather than asking this forum for their opinion.

well the reason why I ask is that I read literature on this topic and I just wanted to know what people on this forum say. There are some quite smart people on this board anyway.

::Let me give you a few reasons why. First of all you often don't know the qualifictions of the people who respond.

As I said there are some people I know on this forum that do have a very good repution.

::Everyone has an opinion, but not all opinions are equal.

That's why I'm asking ;-)

::Some people think they are...antiintillectualism has been seen in this forum on occasion.

Yes, I've seen it too on some topics.

::Second the primary literature will give you many more references to examine than anyone in this forum is likely to post.

I'm not into getting references. I wanted to ask about some forum members opinion, knowing that there are some quite good taxonomists on the list.

::A good place to start is Ott & Endler's "speciation and its consequences" also good are Wheeler and Meier "species concepts and phylogenetic theory" and finally Howard and Berlocher "endless forms". Many if not all of these may be found at your nearest university library or on the internut.
::Read on.

Thanks for that, I'll have a look at them.

Cheers,
Wulf
