Polaszek, A.; Agosti, D.; et al. 2005: A universal register for animal names. 
Nature 437(7058): 477, 22 September 2005

Andrew Polaszek, Secretary of ICZN, and colleagues propose an open-access web-
register for animal names, which they believe is vital to move taxonomy into 
the twenty-first century.

"Our target is to have ZooBank, and a fifth edition of the code, completed by 
2008, the 250th anniversary of Linnaeus' animal nomenclature."
