The Ambiguous Use of the Prefix 'Pan' in Arthropod Systematics

It is emphasised the importance of unambiguous group names in order to provide a precise scientific communication and to avoid confusion in the systematics of organisms.

New species of Primozygodactylus from Messel and the ecomorphology and evolutionary significance of early Eocene zygodactylid birds (Aves, Zygodactylidae)

The fossils corroborate the presence of two very long central tail feathers for Primozygodactylus, and the feathering of the taxon corresponds with that of extant birds foraging in scrub and undergrowth.

From the cladogram to an explanation of anagenesis in an evolutionary history perspective , exemplified by the mammals 1

The methodology of reconstructing phylogeny and the relevant terms are recapitulated, while the significance of fossils in outgroup comparison and for reconstructing the sequence of evolutionary events or the transformation of complex structures is exemplified.


A series of rigorously vetted calibration fossils for arthropod evolutionary history, taking into account recently published guidelines for best practice in fossil calibration are presented, resulting in 80 fossil calibrations for 102 clades.

Proposal of an integrated framework of biological taxonomy: a phylogenetic taxonomy, with the method of using names with standard endings in clade nomenclature

An integrated framework of biological taxonomy is proposed, in which the advantages of phylogenetic taxonomy and traditional, Linnaean nomenclature, together with the temporal banding methods are synthesized, without deteriorating the strength of theoretical coherence.

Assembling the ruminant tree: combining morphology, molecules, extant taxa, and fossils

A new and large morphological matrix is presented that is much larger than previous morphological matrices assembled for ruminant phylogenetics, meaning it can support a larger number of fossil taxa than was previously possible.

The Arthropod Head

The anterior region of arthropods is profoundly influenced by effects of condensation and integration that has taken place in various character complexes and the borders between these different complexes do not necessarily correspond.

The use of the prefix Pan- and other problems in zoological family-series nomenclature.

All zoologists who endorse LN should use nomina complying with the rules of the ICZN Code for taxa of all ranks, including those from superfamily to subtribe and additional intermediate ranks of the nominal family group, also called family-series.

Nodes, Branches, and Phylogenetic Definitions

This paper aims to provide a history of Amphibians & Reptiles at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC and some of the animals that have been collected there since the 1950s.

Coxoplectoptera, a new fossil order of Palaeoptera (Arthropoda: Insecta), with comments on the phylogeny of the stem group of mayflies (Ephemeroptera)

This fossil insect exhibits a very peculiar combination of derived characters like specialized forelegs with strongly elongated, free coxae, single-clawed pretarsus, and distinctly skewed pterothorax as in dragonflies, which excludes this taxon from modern Ephemeroptera.
