Subject: [Taxacom] New publication on: taxonomy, indicators, and the need to go beyond the rate of species description

Dear colleagues,

Together with my co-author Guillaume Ollivier, I am pleased to announce the publication of a long-standing critical paper that you contributed to*, or were interested in:

Tancoigne, Elise, and Guillaume Ollivier. 2017. “Evaluating the Progress and Needs of Taxonomy since the Convention on Biological Diversity:
Going beyond the Rate of Species Description.” /Australian Systematic Botany/ 30 (4):326–36.

/In this paper, we describe and analyze/ /the quantitative evaluations of taxonomy published since 1992, the year in which the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) was adopted./ /We argue that there is a need to rethink the way we evaluate taxonomy today, and we discuss why it is urgent to move beyond the most frequent indicator find in these
evaluations: the rate of species description. We suggest the use of a new set of indicators that would focus on taxonomic resources and dynamics, instead of taxonomic outputs./

The PDF is on the journal's website <https://apac01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdoi.org%2F10.1071%2FSB16017&data=02%7C01%7Cpat.hutchings%40austmus.gov.au%7C5a34c6446b6a4cf28e1308d56cc5af8b%7C665b2cc933dd4a17a851e6023539f7e0%7C0%7C0%7C636534518681322094&sdata=HzdQBcpp3BxmUYP59QxKXYsVZDLo%2BU3Hn66P0gBiZsg%3D&reserved=0.>,
