Dear Taxacomers,

Have you ever wondered how many genus names for accepted taxa have been
published, broken down by taxonomic group? and/or "all names", synonyms
(sensu lato) included (together with the actual lists of names as a
downloadable file) - well, the following newly published paper in the
journal "Megataxa" goes some way to answering these questions:

Rees et al., 2020: "All genera of the world: an overview and estimates
based on the March 2020 release of the Interim Register of Marine and
Nonmarine Genera (IRMNG)"
https://www.mapress.com/j/mt/article/view/megataxa.1.2.3

In case this is of interest, in the present "interesting" times...

Regards to all - Tony
