Many people think that, due to the possibility of DNA sequencing in large quantities, other aspects, such as behavior, are useless for inferring evolutionary paths or origins. In our opinion, we will always need more complex characters, as behavioral characters, for evolutionary studies. Any evolutionary study, any phylogeny, without reference to phenotypic characters are incomplete. There is no point in studying DNA without reference to the phenotype. The advent of genomics may appear to put in a second rank. There are, however, several important arguments on the behalf of behavioral information that need to be raised.
