Dissertation Abstracts International would seem to
fulfill the requirements of Publication under Article
8 of the ICZN -- it consists of numerous identical,
simultaneously obtainable copies, on paper, available
by purchase, made for the purpose of providing a
public and durable record, etc.

Is a new animal genus name published in a dissertation
in Dissertation Abstracts International therefore
available if the abstract contains (1) a statement
that the name is new, (2) designation of a
type-species, and (3) mention of characters that
purport to differentiate the taxon?
