'Mlíkovský J, 1983: Methodological Problems of the Contemporary Systematics of the Family Hominidae. Anthropologie (Brno) 21, 1: 33-36'.
Methodological problems of the contemporary hominid systematics are pointed out and briefly discussed from the point of view of general systematics. The necessity is stressed (1) to distinguish between the evolution (of organism) and phylogeny (of taxa), (2) to distinguish between the phylogenetic and identification diagnoses, and (3) that taxonomic decisions should be made within properly arranged groups only, i.e. here within the Hominoidea, not within the Hominidae.
