Systematics and biogeography
Section edited by Laurence Packer
This section will consider submissions on the description of new zoological taxa and their phylogenetic interrelationships and biogeographic histories at all levels. These may range from simple new species descriptions to new phylogeny-based classifications; studies about the impact of newly explored characters on our understanding of the evolution and distribution of any taxonomic group of animals. Furthermore, the section will consider taxonomic revisions, extensive molecular taxonomic treatments, or the results of large scale biogeographic analyses.
