Charles Godfray has got this week's commentary section of Nature magazine to
tell us how we must re-invent ourselves if we are to survive and flourish.

Given that I have been frequently "flamed" for suggesting much of Godfray
says, etc., I would be interested in hearing TAXACOM's reaction to this

So, see "Challenges for taxonomy" in Nature, 417: 17-19 (2 May 2002).
