Knowledge Representation in Systematic Biology – Edited book proposal seeking comments, contributions

I have an opportunity to edit a new book in the series “Species and Systematics” (originally UC Press; now CRC Press). The draft outline is below, but is subject to change and expansion as deemed appropriate.

I am looking for suggestions, and for potential contributors (naturally, while reserving standard/common sense rights to kindly accept or decline). The book will to collect a number of strong, diverse chapters on various projects and directions in this still very young field. Lead authors of chapters will coordinate with co-authors as preferred. I also intend to give authors much freedom to do and say things they maybe could not express using different publication outlets (while keeping things fair and high-minded).

Another key issue is (of course) – who may have time and motivation to contribute an original and impactful chapter in the coming six months? Either way, I am open to suggestions, contact me on- or off-line.

Can we teach logic reasoners to correctly apply nomenclatural rules?

No, this not concept taxonomy. Instead this post is intended to set up a nomenclaturally and taxonomically correct use case for an Answer Set Programming (ASP) reasoning project. The post will limit itself to: (1) getting the required nomenclatural emendations “right” (Section 4), given (2) a specific set of starting conditions (Sections 1 & 2), and (3) a new taxonomic insight that necessitates change (Section 3).
