Dear All,
     Has anyone seen the April issue of Discover magazine yet?  I hear that there is an article by Joshua Foer entitled "Pushing Phylocode: What if we decide to rename every living thing on earth?".  The title seems to be a bit of an exaggeration, but I assume Joshua is definitely not in favor of PhyloCode either.  Hmmmm, I wonder if he realizes that they want to rename a lot of extinct things as well?  Anyway, I assume he is mainly referring to getting rid of binomials-----but even IF the first phase of PhyloCode survives at all, the second phase (reducing species to uninomials) certainly will not.
  --- Cheers,
