Institutional Votes at the Nomenclature Section of the XX International Botanical Congress, Madrid, 2024
From the Shenzhen Code, Division III, Provision 3:
"3.1. Prior to an International Botanical Congress, the Committee on Institutional Votes updates the list of institutions from the previous Congress and allocates to each institution one to seven votes (see Prov. 5.9(b)). The list must be approved by the General Committee and published (see Prov. 1.4) prior to the Congress. No single institution, even in the wide sense of the term (e.g. mycological and botanical divisions together), is entitled to more than seven votes."
"3.2. Prior to an International Botanical Congress, any institution desiring to vote in the Nomenclature Section and not listed as having been allocated any votes in the previous Nomenclature Section should notify the Rapporteur-général of its wish to be allocated one or more votes and provide relevant information regarding its level of taxonomic activity (e.g. number of active staff, size of collections, current publications). An institution allocated one or more votes in the previous Nomenclature Section and desiring to alter its number of votes may similarly notify the Rapporteur-général."
The deadline for applications to be considered for the list of institutional votes for the Madrid Congress was 31 August 2023. The Committee on Institutional Votes has updated the list and the General Committee has approved it. The institutions that applied for institutional votes have been informed. The list and accompanying report will be published in the February 2024 issue of Taxon.
