    We substantiate our contention that our multivariate analyses (Rexstad et al. 1988) mimic analyses found in the wildlife literature. We caution users of multivariate techniques that data collected in our discipline are unlikely to meet the restrictive assumptions of these techniques. Even if assumptions are met, we contend interpretation of the results is likely to lead to invalid inferences.
