3rd Meeting of the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature
Halifax, Nova Scotia, July 21 – July 23, 2008

We are pleased to announce that the 3rd Meeting of the International Society for Phylogenetic Nomenclature (ISPN) will be held in conjunction with a joint meeting of the International Society of Protistologists and the International Society for Evolutionary Protistology (https://protist2008.dal.ca/). In addition to featuring communications on the theory and practice of phylogenetic nomenclature, this meeting will be an opportunity to discuss the forthcoming release of the PhyloCode and publication of the Companion Volume, as well as development of the on-line registration database (RegNum). All systematists interested in the development of phylogenetic nomenclature are welcome. Discussions and presentations at this meeting may influence the
future development of the PhyloCode.
