Manual for proposing a Part of the LAN

  • The ‘Manual for proposing a Part of the List of Available Names in Zoology’ (in short: the Manual) was prepared by a Committee composed of three Commissioners (Miguel Alonso-Zarazaga, Philippe Bouchet, Richard Pyle) and an invited member (Nikita Kluge). It was thoroughly reviewed and commented by the Head of the ad-hoc Committee on the proposed candidate part LAN for the species-group taxa of Rotifera, Daphne Fautin. The final draft was further reviewed, corrected and finally approved in the Singapore meeting of the ICZN, on November 20th 2013.

  • The Commission expects that this Manual is carefully read and followed by those preparing a proposal of a new part of the LAN, avoiding thus delays in the procedures. For further enquiries about the Manual or its contents, please contact Commissioner Alonso-Zarazaga.
