Contrary to usual practice, the generic nomen Bunopithecus is not applicable to hoolock gibbons. We recount the history of its application and explain why it is spurious. We supply a new generic name, list the characters and content of the genus, and compare it to the other 3 genera of the...

- The What, Why and How of Primate Taxonomy. Groves, Colin // International Journal of Primatology;Oct2004, Vol. 25 Issue 5, p1105
Taxonomy has a well-defined role, which is much more than simply stamp-collecting and pigeon-holing. Species are the units of classification, biogeography and conservation; as such they must be defined as objectively as possible. The biological species concept, still widely used in biology,...
