Practical Taxonomic Procedure for BiologistseBook - 1999
New species are discovered every day?and cataloguing all of them has grown into a nearly insurmountable task world-wide. Now, this definitive reference manual acts as a style guide for writing and filing species descriptions. New collecting techniques and new technology have led to a dramatic increase in the number of species that are discovered. Explorations of unstudied regions and new habitats for almost any group of organisms can result in a large number of new species discoveries?and hence the need to be described. Yet there is no one source a student or researcher can readily consul.
