Eastbourne: Aves Press, 2011. Quarto, laminated boards, CD-ROM, black and white photographs.
Scientific names are vital to communicate clearly and efficiently about the amazing life around us. This is the first book to explain the importance of priority in relation to names in ornithology. Backgrounds are provided on the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature and on printing and publishing over the last 250 years. The compilers then bring together reports on 148 books and 121 periodicals in zoology which, between them, present almost all challenges that can make date determination problematic. A searchable CD ROM is also included.
Price: $100.00 AU
