Abstract

Opinion 75 issued by the Judicial Commission is based on an interpretation of the Rules of the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria (the Code) that failed to take into consideration changes made to the Code by the Judicial Commission prior to consideration of the original Request for an Opinion. Furthermore, closer examination of the Request indicates a number of contradictions that have been carried over into the published Opinion. The Judicial Commission is therefore requested to re-examine Opinion 75.
