  • 329 Traditional (‘Linnaean’) definitions of taxon names ‘have types and no circumscriptions’ (Moore 1998: 565), and the contents of taxa thus defined are inherently unstable. For instance, the Linnaean taxon Hominidae contains the type species Homo sapiens and all other species that ‘deserve’ to be in the same family as the type. However, different people will have different interpretations of just how much divergence or variability is permitted within the Linnaean rank of ‘family’ (for… CONTINUE READING
