During their meeting held in Cape Town from 10 to 13 October, the IUBS approved the following resolution on the ICZN Proposed Amendment on Electronic Publication:
Resolution: Proposed amendment of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature
This General Assembly of the IUBS approves the principles underlying the proposed amendment of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature to expand and refine methods of publication, as published in Zootaxa (1908: 57–67) on 9 October 2008, recognising that the final wording of the amendment will require formal approval by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature after consideration of the input received from the zoological community over the past year. If approved by the Commission, the final wording of the amendment will be referred to the Officers of the IUBS for their endorsement, and for subsequent implementation.
