I put this talk together for a meeting just in case I needed to elaborate on a point in one of my reports. I never used it but post it here for the record.
The slides are pretty self explanatory. The rules of nomenclature applied by some studious nomenclaturists lead to a change in the official name of a protected rodent. A name that has been stable for years. Who does this name change help? What purpose does it serve outside of playing the nomenclatural game?
Your comments are most welcome -especially if you are rodent specialist.
