OK, let's say we give this a try for zoology taxonomy. But before we do:
1. How many bacteriology journals died to give life to the single journal
2. How many more editors and funds did it take to handle on all the
bacteriology taxonomy in one journal as opposed to a distributed network
of editors for different journals?

What are the answers to these same questions if we replace "bacteriology"
with "zoology".
