These papers are not dealing with Brachiopoda but worth to be read.

In her book, Nicole Le Douarin, member of the "Académie des Sciences" write about excess of the molecular biologists in 70-80's (*):

« Cependant ce mouvement, dans certains cas on est allé un peu loin. Aux yeux de beaucoup d’entre eux, la biologie du passé ne méritait que mépris. Par exemple la systématique - maintenant très prisée car elle révèle la biodiversité et elle est un des instruments d’étude de l’évolution - était une perte de temps ...

... Heureusement qu’il existe des institutions qui présentent une stabilité à toute épreuve. Ainsi, le Muséum national d’histoire naturelle par exemple a joué un rôle de conservatoire pour cette discipline. »

(*)... perhaps even today - some researchers applying exclusively molecular techniques should read this book!
