Publications and Authorship

 

Publications conducted for the REVSYS Vaejovidae are of two general forms: phylogenetic treatments determining relationships among genera and species groups of Vaejovidae, with emendations to the higher classification; taxonomic revisions of monophyletic groups in which phylogenetic treatments may be included. Single, ad hoc species descriptions of Vaejovidae are avoided. New vaejovid species are generally described in the context of revisionary syntheses of monophyletic groups. However, single species descriptions may be undertaken by new students in coauthorship with senior project personnel after consulation with the PIs.      
     Responsibilities for revisions of monophyletic groups are determined by project participants on completion of a pilot analysis. Revisionary syntheses of monophyletic groups of Vaejovidae are conducted in a standardised manner, with diagnoses comparing species with their closest relatives, as determined by phylogenetic analysis. All other publications on Vaejovidae produced during the tenure of the grant will be standardised, as far as possible, with respect to terminology, methods and presentation.
