ZooBank – the concept

  • An open-access register for all scientific names of animals

  • Formally proposed: Nature 437: 477 (22 September 2005)

  • Initiated online (www.zoobank.org) August 2006

  • Rapid description of biodiversity facilitated

  • Similarities to the Genbank Accession Number system

  • Taxonomists as ZooBank builders and primary stakeholders

The ICZN Code and type specimens

  • Under present Code – no absolute requirement for type

  • specimens

  • Surrogates are permitted (e.g. images, including sequences

  • or trace files), where type specimens are “illegal, unethical

  • or impossible” under Code Article 73.1.4

But does this promote nomenclatural stability?

Amendments to the ICZN Code

facilitating barcoding and web taxonomy

  • “Principle of Typification” is central to the Code (Article 61.1)

  • Type specimen (HOLOTYPE where possible) is the objective link

  • between the name and the taxonomic concept

  • Where possible, that type specimen should be a whole animal from

  • which morphological and molecular data can be (re-)examined and

  • reassessed

  • Exceptions (no type specimens) could be ratified by the Commission

  • Web-only publication mustbe permitted if registered with ZooBank
