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)"

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

Regards to all - Tony
