ICZN-4 International Code of Zoological Nomenclature 4th Edition
                     DRAFT FOR DISCUSSION

WELCOME! This discussion list is dedicated exclusively to the ICZN 4th
Edition Draft for Discussion. The Draft Code and Explanatory Notes can
be obtained via ftp, www, or gopher from the Cornell MUSE Project
Systematics and Biodiversity server (see below for the specific node
addresses of these services).

          WHERE ARE THE DRAFT CODE AND EXPLANATORY NOTES?

The Draft Code itself is available in three formats:

   1) plain ASCII text,
   2) Postscript (very large file!), and
   3) Postscript in a PKZIP file (significantly smaller than the
      raw Postscript version; you need PKUNZIP to decompress it).

MAKE SURE to retrieve the Explanatory Notes also; they contain
important information from the Commission about the Draft Code.
The Notes file is plain ASCII text (called ICZNREAD.ME in the ftp version).

You can obtain the Explanatory Notes and any of the Draft Code formats
using ftp, www, or gopher. Shown below are the Internet node address
(for ftp and gopher), the URL for the www, and the menu choices.

The Postscript format is only useful for printing or viewing on
a system that supports Postscript.

Acknowledgements:
The ICZN Editorial Committee agreed to make these online documents
available for comment.  F. Christian Thompson, USDA, Editorial Committee
member, provided the ASCII text and Postscript versions. Jim Beach,
UCB/MIP, and Julian Humphries, Cornell, made available the MUSE Project
ftp/www/gopher Systematics, Biological Collections and Biodiversity
server, where these files are posted. See below for the BIOSIS server.

Let me know if you find a problem, e.g., corrupted or missing file, with
any of the files. If you have access to ftp, www, or gopher, but need
help to use them, please refer first to your local computer support person.
