Tracking scientific discovery of avian phylogenetic diversity over 250 years
TLDR
It is found that PD contributions began to plateau in the early 1900s, about half a century earlier than species richness, and that conclusions of studies using avian phylogenies are likely to be robust to future species discoveries.
Database of National Species List of Korea: the taxonomical systematics platform for managing scientific names of Korean native species
TLDR
A species is a basic unit for classifying all living creatures on Earth and has been continually improving since the widespread adoption of binomial nomenclature by Carl Linnaeus.

The Genus in Evolutionary Taxonomy
TLDR
That Linnaeus in later years came to consider that species were not wholly immutable, as Ramsbottom has pointed out, does not mean that he returned to a chaos, comparatively speaking, of fluctuating forms within each genus.
LOGIC AND MEMORY IN LINNAEUS'S SYSTEM OF TAXONOMY.
TLDR
The principles on which Linnaeus based his taxonomy are shown to be, at least in intention, primarily Aristotelian; it is suggested that the principles of Logical Division may still be a powerful source of unwarranted bias in modern classifications.
Linné’s views on the hierarchy of the taxonomic groups
TLDR
The pronouncement quoted above, which means that the groups of individuals which form the species are descended from ancestors that owed their origin to an act of creation, derives its historic importance from the part it played in the debates on the theory of evolution.
