hyphenated names

The 'tradition' before the ICBN was to treat these organism as animals -
hence Mycetozoa (de Bary, Lister, Massee). The reason they are considered
under the 'IC Botanical N' is because the 'cryptogamic botany' departments
included mycologists studying fungi (including Myxomycetes and chromists).

  Le 28-10-03, à 1:39 -0800, nous recevions de Adolf Ceska :

>International Code of Botanical Nomenclature - Preambles

>7. The rules and recommendations apply to all organisms traditionally
>treated as plants, whether fossil or non-fossil, e.g., blue-green algae
>(Cyanobacteria; fungi, including chytrids, oomycetes, and SLIME MOULDS;
>photosynthetic protists and taxonomically related non-photosynthetic
groups.
>Provisions for the names of hybrids appear in App. I.



    Puisque vous semblez vouloir contredire Paul Kirk, le mieux aurait
été de souligner aussi « traditionally » (d'où « The rules and
recommendations apply to all organisms TRADITIONALLY
treated as plants »), puisqu'il écrit :

>  Yes, TRADITIONALLY they are 'plants' but in reality they are
'animals'.
>  The last edition of the Dictionary of the Fungi FOLLOWED TRADITION
>  but for higher taxa provided both forms of the higher taxon name
>  termination.

    Voilà...
