International Code of Zoological Nomenclature

  title={International Code of Zoological Nomenclature},
  author={Francis Arthur Bather},
DURING this year I have so often been asked how this Code could be obtained that I hasten, with your permission, to announce that the Washington Biological Society has just published a reprint at the price of one dollar. Prof. C. W. Stiles, secretary to the Commission, says: “I would suggest that, if your colleagues wish copies, it would expedite matters to order a number at once”. The address of the Society is at the Bureau of Entomology, Washington, D.C., U.S.A. 
Third meeting of the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature: a report
Topics discussed at the ISPN meeting include problems created by rank-based nomenclature in various eukaryotic taxa, dealing with hybrids in rank‐based and phylogenetic nomenClature, phyloinformatics, the choice of names to use when the taxonomic content associated with available names varies, teaching phylogeneticnomenclumber, and the application of phylogeneticNomenclatures to specific taxa.
The usage of subgenera in mammalian taxonomy
The advantages of the usage of subgenera as a practical taxonomic rank in mammalian taxonomy are discussed, which preserves traditional usage, reduces nomenclatural instability and avoids unnecessary change of names.
Zoological vs. botanical nomenclature: a forgotten BioCode experiment from the times of the Strickland Code
A code intended to apply to both zoological and botanical nomenclature was drafted in 1842–43 by a commission appointed by the fourth Congress of Italian Scientists on request of the zoologist Carlo
Second Meeting of the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature: a Report
Discussion focused on recent controversial additions to the draft PhyloCode concerning the choice of names for total clades, and the Committee on Phylogenetic Nomenclature (CPN) was encouraged to revisit this issue.
Letter to the editor
It has always, therefore, been my view that the policy of using only a single "i", adopted by the American Fisheries Society's lists of names, has been contrary to the ICZN, and this has resulted in the name for New Zealand's longfin eel sometimes being speltAnguilla dieffenbachi, when used in some North American journals.
Designation of Pseudobiotus kathmanae Nelson, Marley & Bertolani, 1999 as the type species for the genus Pseudobiotus Nelson, 1980 (Tardigrada)
The contents of the application to the International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature, case 3017, are presented with an explanation of how its publication fell between the third and fourth
Towards a List of Available Names in Zoology, partim Phylum Rotifera
An overview of the general approach and procedures applied in preparation of the candidate list, and anticipate that this effort will promote the process as well as result in a standard list of names for use in taxonomy, the Global Names Architecture and other biodiversity information initiatives.
International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature
Required six-months' notice is given on the possible use of plenary powers by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature in connection with the following names, listed by Case Number.
Type specimens in modern ornithology are necessary and irreplaceable
A series of new species descriptions in which no type specimen or fragmentary type specimen material was provided as documentation, but a more appropriate approach is documentation of the discovery, but without formal naming of the species, until suitable specimen documentation can be assembled.
The Passandridae (Insecta: Coleoptera) Collection of the Natural History Museum, London: An Annotated and Illustrated Catalogue
Data on the Passandridae collection of the Natural History Museum, including type specimens of 50 names, of them 29 valid and 21 invalid, are presented, and images of type and other significicant specimens are provided for 55 taxa, mainly for the first time.
