  • Biological nomenclature terms for facilitating communication in the naming of organisms 

    David, John; Garrity, George M.; Greuter, Werner; Hawksworth, David L.; Jahn, Regine; Kirk, Paul M.; McNeill, John; Michel, Ellinor; Knapp, Sandra; Patterson, David J.; Tindall, Brian J.; Todd, Jonathan A.; Tol, Jan van; Turland, Nicholas J. (Pensoft, 2012-05-08)
    A set of terms recommended for use in facilitating communication in biological nomenclature is presented as a table showing broadly equivalent terms used in the traditional Codes of nomenclature. These terms are intended ...
  • Broadly sampled multigene analyses yield a well-resolved eukaryotic tree of life 

    Parfrey, Laura Wegener; Grant, Jessica; Tekle, Yonas I.; Lasek-Nesselquist, Erica; Morrison, Hilary G.; Sogin, Mitchell L.; Patterson, David J.; Katz, Laura A. (2010-06-01)
    An accurate reconstruction of the eukaryotic tree of life is essential to identify the innovations underlying the diversity of microbial and macroscopic (e.g. plants and animals) eukaryotes. Previous work has divided ...
  • Data issues in the life sciences 

    Thessen, Anne E.; Patterson, David J. (Pensoft Publishers, 2011-11-28)
    We review technical and sociological issues facing the Life Sciences as they transform into more data-centric disciplines - the “Big New Biology”. Three major challenges are: 1) lack of comprehensive standards; 2) lack of ...
  • Identity of epibiotic bacteria on symbiontid euglenozoans in O2-depleted marine sediments : evidence for symbiont and host co-evolution 

    Edgcomb, Virginia P.; Breglia, S. A.; Yubuki, Naoji; Beaudoin, David J.; Patterson, David J.; Leander, Brian S.; Bernhard, Joan M. (2010-06)
    A distinct subgroup of euglenozoans, referred to as the “Symbiontida,” has been described from oxygen-depleted and sulfidic marine environments. By definition, all members of this group carry epibionts that are intimately ...
  • Names are key to the big new biology 

    Patterson, David J.; Cooper, J.; Kirk, Paul M.; Pyle, R. L.; Remsen, David P. (2010-09-20)
    Those who seek answers to big, broad questions about biology, especially questions emphasizing the organism (taxonomy, evolution, ecology), will soon benefit from an emerging names-based infrastructure. It will draw on ...
  • Taxonomic indexing—extending the role of taxonomy 

    Patterson, David J.; Remsen, David P.; Marino, William A.; Norton, Cathy N. (Taylor & Francis, 2006-06)
    Taxonomic indexing refers to a new array of taxonomically intelligent network services that use nomenclatural principles and elements of expert taxonomic knowledge to manage information about organisms. Taxonomic indexing ...
  • Taxonomic informatics tools for the electronic nomenclator zoologicus 

    Remsen, David P.; Norton, Cathy N.; Patterson, David J. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-02)
    Given the current trends, it seems inevitable that all biological documents will eventually exist in a digital format and be distributed across the internet. New network services and tools need to be developed to increase ...
  • The taxonomic significance of species that have only been observed once : the genus Gymnodinium (Dinoflagellata) as an example 

    Thessen, Anne E.; Patterson, David J.; Murray, Shauna A. (Public Library of Science, 2012-08-30)
    Taxonomists have been tasked with cataloguing and quantifying the Earth’s biodiversity. Their progress is measured in code-compliant species descriptions that include text, images, type material and molecular sequences. ...
  • uBioRSS : tracking taxonomic literature using RSS 

    Leary, Patrick R.; Remsen, David P.; Norton, Cathy N.; Patterson, David J.; Sarkar, Indra Neil (Oxford University Press, 2007-03-28)
    Web content syndication through standard formats such as RSS and ATOM has become an increasingly popular mechanism for publishers, news sources, and blogs to disseminate regularly updated content. These standardized ...
