Convenor: Paul Andrew, Taronga Zoo

The Taxonomy Advisory Group operates in the capacity of advisor to the ARAZPA office, ASMP Committee and ARAZPA Board, on issues relating to taxonomy.

Although there are few taxonomy specialists in the region, there are many people making animal management decisions based on taxonomic definitions.

The convenor invites those people to become active participants of this group, and to take part in the decision-making process.  A key function of this group will also be to promote a wider understanding of:
  • taxonomic principles
  • the ways in which taxonomic advice is provided
  • the rationale behind the management units recommended by Taxon Advisory Groups
  • other relevant issues


Membership Eligibility: Membership to the Taxonomy Specialist Advisory Group is open to Full Individual ARAZPA members and people working in zoos and aquariums.
