Phylogenetic Nomenclature Discussion

As announced about a month ago on this list, the International Society
for Phylogenetic Nomenclature (the society associated with the
PhyloCode), has a new bulletin board discussion forum:

Now that it's been up for a little while, some discussions have begun
that may be of interest to people on this list. Here's a sampling:

- "Unambiguous Dinosaurian Taxa" (an attempt to compile a list of taxa
without competing definitions)

- "Archosauria and Recommendation 11A" (how to define "Archosauria" in
compliance with the PhyloCode)

- "'Standard' Specifiers for Major [Amniote] Clades"

- "Apomorphy-based names, crown groups, etc." (includes much
discussion on the name "Aves")

I'd like to encourage everyone interested in phylogenetic nomenclature
to join (or at least check it out).

See (some of) you in a month!
