Definition

  • according to Hottinger (2006):

STRATOPHENETICS - the reconstruction of phylogenetic relationships based on morphological (phenetic) similarity on one hand and on the other by the time relationships provided by biostratigraphic ranges, in contrast to cladistics. The most common procedure in the construction of the phyletic lineages of foraminifera. For backup theory see Gingerich, 1990.
