In Reply to: from below . . . Collins list vs Crother list . . . Q? posted by troy h on January 20, 2003 at 19:41:06:

on the committee, that Crothers competely ignored most of their input.

Bottom line is, if this is indeed important to hobbyists, zoo keepers, etc., then let them come up with the list. I simply do not see any trained biologist wasting any kind of time to compile a list that does not benefit the scientific community (and again, this does not make the public any friendlier towards herps, as some will claim, cause a bullsnake will always be a bullsnake, a chicken snake a chicken snake, etc.)

I am not well versed in the so called "standard names" (especially at the subspecific level), but I also have never had trouble communicating with any person (academic, hobbyist, zoo keeper, museum personnel, etc.) on a US herp, and I have worked in and/or dealt with all of the mentioned professions. Again, it sounds like biologists with too much time on their hands...
Later, KW
