See http://osf1.gmu.edu/~herwin for the latest version (7/30/95) of my
primate database. It's getting fairly stable, but it remains a jungle due
1. crossing synaptomorphies,
2. unstable character polarities,
3. hitchhiking of neutral characters,
4. gene flow, and
5. the effect of endogenous selective gradients (often making homoplasy
and homomorphy hard to distinguish).
