I wonder why there are so many Star Trek related articles around here. On an unrelated note, see Star Trek: Into Darkness, a Paramount Pictures production playing at a theater near you.

So if mtDNA isn't that good a tool, then what is? And why write a huge article about it?

semi interesting article, but the first thing that came to mind on reading the headline was : The Taxonomy of Barney

Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature;
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

I always wondered how they identified the ibex, red deer and grains found in Ötzi's stomach.

Actually, pineapple and pepperoni is pretty good together.
