Perelleschus concept paper receives Outstanding Paper for 2013 Award
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.
