    • Abstract


      A new approach for differentiating between different groups of individuals on the basis of statistical evaluation of pairs of attributes (each member belonging to different group) is proposed. The “polythetic divisive ” classificatory method is employed. The methods discussed may prove helpful in establishing precise interspecific variations as also the variability amongst various higher taxa in cestode taxonomy thus contributing a support in the direction of revision attempts of future workers.
