"Are you with Brent Mischler who believes "there is no such thing as "species" or "speciation"? Or are you with David Wagner who has spent much of his lifetime learning to identify every plant species in Oregon?"I have activated a simple "poll" to survey your "yes" or "no"opinion, although I have reworded the question to:
Do species have to be monophyletic?
Science it is not a democracy, but let see how people thinks about species. Hopefully we will have a good participation, at least more than the voices already heard in this interesting exchange.
The poll will be open and available here and at the left column.
Update: Beware, before you cast your vote please read Zander´s clarification on "phylogenetic monophyly" and "evolutionary monophyly" HERE.
