Systematics

For an excellent introduction to the basics of taxonomy and systematics, readers should taxonomy consult Cranston et al. (1991). The arguments for and against the cladistic, phenetic, and phyletic approaches to classification are discussed by Simpson (1961), Skal and Sneath (1963), Hennig (1965, 1966, 1981), Mayr (1969, 1981), Wagner (1969), Michener (1970), Sneath and Sokal (1973), Ross (1974), and Goto (1982). Boudreaux (1979), Hennig (1981), Kristensen (1981, 1989, 1991), and Kukalova-Peck (1985, 1987, 1991) provide extensive reviews of the phylogeny of insects.
