Phylocode

I'm not generally going to repeat postings from last year. I'll leave you to discover them yourselves. However in a few instances I am going to repeat particularly useful links to bring them to your attention. In this instance I think you should all venture out to the cutting edge of systematics and read this Discover magazine article about the phylocode proposal and the ensuing controversy.

“This would be very similar to a set of politicians who decided to bypass the Constitution to create a whole new set of laws.”

What do you think? Is this a change that will happen? Is it a change that should happen?
