Proposed amendments to the Constitution of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature
The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature is publishing proposed amendments to its Constitution in order to solicit feedback from the zoological community on them. Constructive comments are welcome and will be published in the Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature in order to further useful debate on how best to revise the foundational rules and principles of the ICZN. The amendment is published in the Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, ZooKeys, Zootaxa, and the European Journal of Taxonomy.
Along with amendments to its Bylaws, this proposed amendment to the Constitution of the ICZN helps the Commission clarify its position in fulfilling its aim of promoting stability and universality in nomenclature.
