Phylonyms : A Companion to the PhyloCode, Hardback Book


Phylonyms is an implementation of PhyloCode, which is a set of principles, rules, and recommendations governing phylogenetic nomenclature.

Nearly 300 clades - lineages of organisms - are defined by reference to hypotheses of phylogenetic history rather than by taxonomic ranks and types.

This volume will document the Real World uses of PhyloCode and will govern and apply to the names of clades, while species names will still be governed by traditional codes. Key FeaturesProvides clear regulations for implementing new guidelines for naming lineages of organismsincorporates expressly evolutionary and phylogenetic principlesWorks with existing codes of nomenclatureEliminates the reliance on rank-based classification in favor of phylogenetic relationshipsRelated Titles:Rieppel, O.
