Subj: RE: Fast-track publication?
Perhaps the fastest track is the electronic one, namely, "publishing"
in an electronic database, which can then be disseminated widely and quickly,
and can be updated as taxonomic prowess and knowledge proceed. The taxonomic
database (e.g., every species or genus is a record, with fields for
morphological characteristics, etc) could also be linked to specimen databases
(holotypes, hypodigms, etc.), so that information and its voucher(s) are
accessible as a relational unit.
