A long time ago, the journal Notornis took this a step further. Not only were bird names capitalised, they were typed in BOLD! They stood out spectacularly from the surrounding text, which made it wonderfully easy to comprehend, and to pick out the things of interest. The idea is to communicate, and if you can take steps to improve clarity and understanding, then why not?

Cheers, Chris.
