Subject: hands off genera?
Philip, Glad to hear you have made progress on the provision to differentia= lly mark phylocode names (with a slash) as was discussed on TAXACOM last fall= ). During those same discussions, you probably recall that I suggested= that generic names (as well as specific names) not be included in the initial testing phase of phylocode. Now others are suggesting the same thing on = this list. Is this being seriously considered? I hope so, since one of David Baum's stated goals is to avoid taxonomic chaos, and it seems increasingl= y clear that trying to tackle generic names before testing phylocode at hig= her taxonomic levels could result in more chaos, rather than less. ------Ken Kinman ____________________________________________________________________ Get free email and a permanent address at http://www.netaddress.com/?N=3D= 1
