[Taxacom] ICZN Opinions online

As part of my efforts to find articles in the Biodiversity Heritage  
Library I've located some 1600 articles in the Bulletin of Zoological  
Nomenclature http://biostor.org/issn/0007-5167

This is still rather incomplete, and the search interface to BioStor  
is pretty rubbish. However, you can browse Opinion by viewing the  
publications of two rather prolific authors:

Opinion http://biostor.org/author/1085
R V Melville http://biostor.org/author/505

Bibliographic details in BioStor can be edited, so feel free to make  
corrections (you'll need to solve a CAPTCHA before your edits are  
saved). As time permits I'm added "Opinion nnn." to the start of the  
title of opinions, with a view to making them easier to find.  
Unfortunately the local copy of BHL metadata that I'm using doesn't  
have a taxonomic index for Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature  
publications, so Opinions can't be found by searching for names.

At some point it would be fun to link Opinions to the original  
Proposals, e.g. http://biostor.org/reference/2226  to http://biostor.org/reference/2242
