Abstract

The International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature has used the Scratchpads platform (currently being developed and maintained by {ViBRANT)} as the foundation for its redesigned website and as a platform for engaging with its users. The existing Scratchpad tools, with extensions to provide additional functions, have allowed for a major transformation in presentation of linked nomenclatural tools. Continued development of the new website will act as a springboard for the {ICZN} to participate more fully in the wider community of biodiversity informatics.
