Dr Brian Stuckenberg of the Natal Museum passed away
With great sadness I have to inform you that the most adorable and beloved friend and colleague of ours, Dr Brian Stuckenberg, passed away yesterday. Brian joined the Natal Museum staff in 1953, and has been deeply involved in all aspects of Museum life since then and until his last day. After his retirement in 1994, he became an Honorary Research Associate and Director emeritus of the Natal Museum, and continued with his research and editorial commitments at African Invertebrates.

You may forward your words of condolescence to me; I'll print your messages out and forward them to Brian's family.

Kind regards,
Mike Mostovski

Amendment of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature
The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature proposes the following amendment of the fourth edition of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (hereafter "the Code"), to allow electronic publishing coupled with archiving of works and registration of new scientific names. In addition to electronic publication, the proposal perforce addresses methods of publication in general. It is followed by an explanation of the procedure for amendment and adoption, and discussion of the reasoning behind the proposal. Comments from the community of zoologists are sought, whether to oppose, support, or suggest improvements and alternatives for the various parts of this proposal.
