I've de-prodded this because a bit of searching using Google Scholar strongly suggests that it's a notable concept/statistic within the field of ecology; see [1]. However, most of the sources that Google Scholar are academic journals that I can't access from home, so I won't actually be able to verify all of the information in the article for a day or two.

Shouldn't the phrase be "it is not a metric", rather than "it is not a distance". It is a distance as it generally has a higher number when things are more dissimilar. However, it is not a metric because it doesn't satisfy the triangle equality... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:26, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
