Everyone uses species names and yet there are communication gaps between those who who name species (systematists) and those who use species names (everyone). Species are real, and have macroevolutionary meaning. And it follows that systematists have a broadly macroevolution-oriented approach to describing diversity. But taxon names are used by all areas of science, including many fields such as ecology that come from a strictly microevolution-centric approach. This book is intended to explore why different groups of scientists understand and use taxa in very different ways, and the consequences for measuring and understanding biodiversity.
