Re: An odd paper request
I am been reading Bertling et al. 2006 and they mention that Reineck and
Flemming give names to both human urinating traces and tyre traces. While
I realize that these are nomina nuda
That would mean there's no description, which I doubt. Perhaps you mean
nomina vana, which would mean there's no type specimen, but it's entirely
possible there is.
Ichnotaxonomy is separate from taxonomy; animals and their works (such as
traces) get separate sets of names that do not compete with each other.
