Dear All,

based on discussions and experiences I could make on COP8 I wrote down
some thoughts about:

    Taxonomists and Users: two species that rarely meet

I always was surprised to see that both users and taxonomists constantly
and almost obstinately fail to communicate. This text should shed some
light on this situation. I dont think it is a 'final' text, so new ideas
and hints are always welcomed. Please feel free to send the link to
others, and sorry for double posting!
