Taxonomy anarchy hampers conservation (article)

Taxonomy anarchy hampers conservation discusses the challenges and implications of inconsistent species classification in conservation efforts.


  • Taxonomy Chaos: The lack of a standardised approach to defining species leads to arbitrary classifications, affecting conservation policies and funding.
  • Conservation Impact: Inconsistent taxonomy can skew conservation priorities and legal protections for species, potentially harming biodiversity efforts.
  • Proposed Solution: The authors suggest that the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS) should oversee taxonomy to ensure consistent species definitions.
  • Global Species Lists: Standardised global species lists, reviewed for compliance with agreed standards, could improve conservation strategies and scientific credibility.
