"This accomplishment is a first major step towards completing the Linnaean enterprise, which is essential for mapping Earth's still poorly known fauna. With the firm foundation ZooBank aims to provide, the rest of biology will be immensely strengthened, and humanity correspondingly benefited"
Edward O. Wilson, Harvard Professor, and the leading authority on biodiversity.

"This is a hugely significant step for animal conservation. With ZooBank in place we will all have access to a single reference list of animal names, and so discussions about priority species and habitats can proceed with greater clarity and speed."
Georgina Mace OBE, Director of Science, Zoological Society of London.
