Abstract

Numerical methods were applied to an analysis of the relationships among Salmonella serotypes listed in the Kauffmann-White schema. Although the result suggested a possible new basis for schematic arrangement of these serotypes, a complete and satisfactory classification could not be derived entirely from the computer results. Examination of this outcome suggests some cautions to be observed in the design and interpretation of experiments in numerical taxonomy.
