Abstract

This work introduces a series of papers devoted to the ascertainment of the valid nomina, under the revised Duplostensional Nomenclatural System (DONS-2), of the highest taxa (from the rank order to the rank class) of recent amphibians and ‘reptiles’. The main general features of the DONS approach to class-series nomenclature (above the rank superfamily) are explained in detail, the DONS-2 procedure for ascertaining the availability, allocation, validity and correctness of class-series nomina is described, and a Glossary of all the technical nomenclatural terms used in this work is provided.
