Theses and new species

At the risk of being naive, surely it should be a role of a student's
supervisor(s) to see that new taxa are formally published in a more widely
dispersed "publication" than a thesis.
There are plenty of good journals for publication of new taxa.
In any case, I should have thought the student would have considered it in
her/his interest to place their new work before a wide audience as soon as
possible.  With the numbers of publications seemingly required now to give
post grad students any hope of getting post doctoral fellowships, there
ought to be enough incentive to publish in an acceptable journal.
