I was reading yet another thread on the DML (Dinosaur Mailing List)
about conflicts between PhyloCode and ICZN. I guess I should say
"potential" conflicts, since PhyloCode is thankfully still not in effect.
Anyway, what caught my attention this time was not only the admission
that PhyloCode and ICZN (and presumably other Codes) would have to "duke it
out" over conflicts, but the suggestion that ICZN (and presumably other
Codes) should only deal with genus and species names. Ha ha!!! Like we are
going to let them take over jurisdiction of family group names, ordinal
names, etc. Especially since they seem deadset on destroying the Linnaean
hierarchy altogether. Anyway, here's a link to the posting (the most
pertinent parts are the last two paragraphs):
