Excerpt

At the meeting of the Judicial Commission of the ICSB held in Jerusalem on the 29th March, 1973 an Ad Hoc Committee was appointed (Minute 22) to organize a review of the currently valid names of bacteria with the object of retaining only names for those taxa which were adequately described and, if cultivable, for which there was a Type, Neotype or Reference strain available; to compile these names under the title of Approved Lists of Bacterial Names and to publish the lists in the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology, to become effective on January 1, 1980. This date would then replace May 1, 1753 (International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria and Viruses. Rule 10) as the new date for determining priorities for names of new taxa.

The Approved Lists of Bacterial Names was published in the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology (IJSB 30: 225–420, 1980) and reprinted in book form to provide for the requirements of the Bacteriological Code (1976 Revision) in initiating a new starting date for bacterial nomenclature, 1 January 1980. Despite every care, errors in the text have been detected and these errors have now been corrected in this Amended Edition.

On behalf of the Ad Hoc Committee of the Judicial Commission of the International Committee on Systematic Bacteriology
