Willi Hennig

The Willi Hennig Society – founded in 1980 – is a forum for advancing the science of phylogenetic systematics. The Society provides the opportunity for diverse workers, from every area of systematics, to debate within a cladistic framework aspects relating to both systematic practices and applications of systematics such as paleontology, historical biogeography, evolutionary morphology, ecology, or conservation biology. Our members combine an interest in the principles of systematics with a strong sense of the importance of empirical work. The exchange of ideas occurs at annual meetings, and in the pages of the Society’s journal, Cladistics. The benefits brought to systematics as a field by the Society have been amply documented in the journal since its inception. We expect to continue to benefit systematics into the future.

Membership fees (without a subscription to Cladistics) have been waived until and including 2023. Please e-mail Secretary Torsten Dikow (DikowT@si.edu) to join the Willi Hennig Society during this time.
