International Code of Zoological Nomenclature
4th edition, 2000 hard cover
The fourth edition of the Code entirely supersedes the previous edition.
The ICZN has the one fundamental aim, which is to provide the maximum universality and continuity in the scientific names of animals compatible with the freedom of scientists to classify all animals according to taxonomic judgement.
Important reference work sets out the internationally accepted rules for the scientific naming of animals, both living and fossils.
An indespensable working tool for all taxonomists in pure or applied zoology and palaeontology.
