In this paper, the various mathematical methods applied to taxonomy are introduced to readers. Some approaches to the classification induced by statistics, graph
theory, information theory, fuzzy mathematics are discussed. An example of classification (6 OTU’s with 8 characters) is given for convenience of discussion. The original
data matrix of this example is obtained from 6 species in the family of Campanulaceae.
