"Molecular biology, specifically the advent of DNA testing and analysis, has brought about a virtual revolution in the biological sciences, especially in the realm of classification and systematics, or taxonomy. Many plants and other organisms thought to be unrelated under the old systems are now revealed to share genetics closely in common — and some long classified as near relatives have been discovered to bear physical resemblances only." — John Eastman, Book of Field and Roadside.
