Dear Peter Higgins and all,

I recently had a dig at EMU for departing from Christidis & Boles in an
article on sea birds. Apart from scaring a few innocent folk who are living
in fear of the day when the biological species concept bites the dust it
went unremarked.

Can you tell us - are the instructions for authors in the Emu back cover
still being adhered to?

Was the lapse into  Robertson and Nunn (1998) terminology a mistake or a
prophecy that C&B will soon be incorporating the revised Albatross
classification in C&B mark 2?

Is the sky falling? Can Chicken Little (Gallus gallus) survive?

Bob Berry.
