Perelleschus concept paper receives Outstanding Paper for 2013 Award

TaylorFrancisPrize-2013The Editorial leaders of Systematics and Biodiversity have given our Perelleschus concept paper the Journal’s Outstanding Paper for 2013 Award, shared with Coyer et al. 2013.

Editor Prof. Elliot Shubert writes that among the notable comments were: “A carefully argued exploration of the use of taxonomic concepts, and justification of the “sec” notation, which provides a sound basis for further development of these ideas.” And: “It is the treatment of tracking the history of concepts of taxa that I believe is of great consequence, particularly as taxonomy moves into an increasingly electronic realm.” We thank the Editors for this endorsement.
