Abstract

Following an electronic discussion on proposals to emend Principle 8, Rules 5b, 8, 15, 33a, and Appendix 7 of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (ICNP), I here report the outcome of the ballot on these proposals by the members of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes. These emendations enact the addition of the categories of kingdom and domain to the ICNP.
