I am an outside observer (medical) of biological taxonomy. I am interested
in the taxonomy of our species, but have been unable to find a formal
definition for *Homo sapiens* more recent than the one in Linnaeus’ last
edition of *Systema natura*, as modified by Gmelin and translated by Kerr (
*http://dx.doi.org/10.5962/bhl.title.57940*
<http://dx.doi.org/10.5962/bhl.title.57940>). More recent publications of
primate taxonomy in English available to me refer to Linneaus’ definition.
Can anyone direct me to a more recent formal revision?
