1. A common registration-to-publication automated pipeline for nomenclatural acts for higher plants (International Plant Names Index, IPNI), fungi (Index Fungorum, MycoBank) and animals (ZooBank).

    ZooKeys (550):233 (2016) PMID 26877662 PMCID PMC4741224

    Collaborative effort among four lead indexes of taxon names and nomenclatural acts (International Plant Name Index (IPNI), Index Fungorum, MycoBank and ZooBank) and the journals PhytoKeys, MycoKeys and ZooKeys to create an automated, pre-publication, registration workflow, based on a server-to-s...
  2. Manual for proposing a Part of the List of Available Names (LAN) in Zoology.

    ZooKeys (550):283 (2016) PMID 26884699 PMCID PMC4741227

  3. Towards a Global Names Architecture: The future of indexing scientific names.

    ZooKeys (550):261 (2016) PMID 26877664 PMCID PMC4741226

    For more than 250 years, the taxonomic enterprise has remained almost unchanged. Certainly, the tools of the trade have improved: months-long journeys aboard sailing ships have been reduced to hours aboard jet airplanes; advanced technology allows humans to access environments that were once utt...
  4. Community next steps for making globally unique identifiers work for biocollections data.

    ZooKeys (494):133 (2015) PMID 25901117 PMCID PMC4400380

    Biodiversity data is being digitized and made available online at a rapidly increasing rate but current practices typically do not preserve linkages between these data, which impedes interoperation, provenance tracking, and assembly of larger datasets. For data associated with biocollections, th...
  5. Luzonichthysseaver, a new species of Anthiinae (Perciformes, Serranidae) from Pohnpei, Micronesia.

    Biodiversity data journal (3):e4902 (2015) PMID 25941454 PMCID PMC4411493

    Luzonichthysseaver, n. sp., is described from two specimens, 42-46 mm standard length (SL) collected from Pohnpei, Micronesia. Collections were made by divers on mixed-gas closed-circuit rebreathers using hand nets at depths of 90-100 m. Luzonichthysseaver is distinct from all other species of t...
  6. Neoniphonpencei, a new species of holocentrid (Teleostei: Beryciformes) from Rarotonga, Cook Islands.

    Biodiversity data journal (3):e4180 (2015) PMID 25698898 PMCID PMC4319167

    Neoniphonpencei, n. sp., is described from thirteen specimens, 132-197 mm standard length (SL) collected from mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) at Rarotonga, Cook Islands by divers using mixed-gas closed-circuit rebreathers. It differs from all other species of the genus in number of lateral li...
  7. Evolution of pygmy angelfishes: recent divergences, introgression, and the usefulness of color in taxonomy.

    Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 74:38 (2014) PMID 24500654

    The pygmy angelfishes (genus Centropyge, family Pomacanthidae) are brightly colored species that occupy reef habitats in every tropical ocean. Some species are rarely observed because they occur below conventional scuba depths. Their striking coloration can command thousands of U.S. dollars in t...
  8. Phylogeographic analyses of submesophotic snappers Etelis coruscans and Etelis "marshi" (family Lutjanidae) reveal concordant genetic structure across the Hawaiian Archipelago.

    PLoS ONE 9(4):e91665 (2014) PMID 24722193 PMCID PMC3982960

    The Hawaiian Archipelago has become a natural laboratory for understanding genetic connectivity in marine organisms as a result of the large number of population genetics studies that have been conducted across this island chain for a wide taxonomic range of organisms. However, population geneti...
  9. Xanthichthysgreenei, a new species of triggerfish (Balistidae) from the Line Islands.

    Biodiversity data journal (1):e994 (2013) PMID 24723781 PMCID PMC3964694

    Xanthichthysgreenei sp. n. is described from six specimens, 97-154 mm standard length (SL) collected from mesophotic coral ecosystems (90-100 m) at Kiritimati (Christmas Island), Line Islands, part of the Republic of Kiribati in the Central Pacific. Of the six species of Xanthichthys, it is most...
