Dear Taxacomers,

Speaking of the date set for the start of the BioCode, I want to comment =
that as far as Zoology is concerned, the ICZN is now outting out the 4th =
edition of the Code of Zoological Nomenclature. This will be publicly =
presented and commented  in  August 2000 at the New (XVIIIth) =
International Congress of Zoology in Athens. If the BioCode will be up =
to discussion there, its eventual advantages will be discussed too. =
There is no hurry in unifying the codes  if there is no guarantee that =
valuable and specific information will not be lost.
