Abstract

Following ICZN (1999) Article 79 Chapter 17 http://www.nhm.ac.uk/hosted-sites/iczn/code/), we, with the full support of the international community of rotifer researchers as expressed during subsequent international Rotifera symposia, developed a Candidate Part of the List of Available Names for species and genera of Rotifera from the start of zoological nomenclature to the year 2000.
