I have been producing some dendograms using hclust with a variety of
linkage distance measures.  Does anyone know or is there a good resource
that explains why one would use one linkage distance rather than another?

I don't really like dealing with dendograms, but we want to produce
groupings based on these to do differential analysis on, and I would
like to be able to justify it.
