Cladistics, or phylogenetic systematics, is a systematic and taxonomic discipline. Hennig (, ), founded the discipline although he was certainly not the first to use many of its principles. It provides a method for reconstructing the phylogenetic relationships between species and higher taxa. Cladistics is a biological classification system based on analysis of traits, genetic makeup or physiology that were shared with a common ancestor until some type of divergence occurred, producing new species. German taxonomist Willi Hennig jumpstarted cladistic classification in when he wrote his book on phylogenetic systematics.

He uses the relatively new technique of cladistics, which analyzes the distribution and evolution of individual taxonomic characteristics among taxa, to reconstruct the phylogeny within the genera, subfamilies, tribes, species. Lightly illustrated with drawings. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, by: Using the relatively new technique of cladistics, which analyzes the distribution and evolution of individual taxonomic characteristics among the taxa, the author and his collaborators have reconstructed the phylogeny within the family Asteraceae. Using various cladistic algorithms, "trees" of different kinds are generated, with the taxa at the tips of the branches. Asteraceae: cladistics & classification. [Kåre Bremer; Arne A Anderberg] -- Using the relatively new technique of cladistics, which analyzes the distribution and evolution of individual taxonomic characteristics among the taxa, the author and his collaborators have. This structural diversity is reflected in the higher classification of the family, with a total of 31 subfamilies proposed to date. Up until recently the subfamilies of Bombyliidae were based on classifications formulated early this century, and those divisions did not accurately reflect the cladistic relationships within the family.
