Astrocladistics is about cladistics in astrophysics, or classification of complex astrophysical objects in evolution, particularly galaxies. This is my research subject since 2001.
This blog, created August 1st, 2011, is intended to be the place where I present and explain the concepts, the techniques, the results, the failures, of astrocladistics, in a different way than in the published papers.
I have also written a book, in french, that you can download: De la diversification des galaxies.
This blog is thus a web site on astrocladistics, aimed at researchers from many disciplines, but hopefully it could become a place of discussions and (why not?) new collaborations — hence a Science blog.
