The International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants
The International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (the Melbourne Code) was published in December in hardcover and online. This new Melbourne Code, the ICN, replaces the Vienna Code of 2006 and incorporates the decisions taken at the XVIII International Botanical Congress held in Melbourne, Australia, in July 2011. The changes in the rules include provision for electronic publication and the option of using English instead of Latin for descriptions of new taxa both of which came into effect on 1 January 2012, and the requirements for “registration” of new names of fungi coming into effect on 1 January 2013.
The Nomenclature Committee for Fungi has recommended three repositories for fungal names as required under article 42.1 starting 1 January 2013. These are:
