Finalist for 2009 The Council on Botanical & Horticultural Libraries Literature Award! A Fresh Look at Taxonomy The most fundamental of all biological sciences, taxonomy underpins any long term strategies for reconstructing the great tree of life or salvaging as much biodiversity as possible. Yet we are still unable to say with any certainty how many species are living on the earth. The New Taxonomy describes how a confluence of theory, cyberinfrastructure, and international teamwork can meet this unprecedented research challenge and marks an emerging field, cybertaxonomy. Taxonomy Meets the Challenges of the Biodiversity Crisis An in-depth discussion of the future of descriptive taxonomy, the book examines the efforts of several international groups to catalog the world’s biodiversity and make it accessible. An answer to Julien Huxley’s The New Systematics, the book marks the beginning of an upward trajectory of taxonomy to meet the unprecedented challenges of the biodiversity crisis. Contemporary taxonomists reclaim the unique mission, goals, and importance of taxonomy as an independent science. They cover technologies such as DNA evidence and its applications, computer-assisted species identification, digital morphology, and E-typification. The book also provides insight into effective ways of organizing taxonomic information and discusses what benefits can be leveraged from a rapid growth of taxonomic knowledge. A Vision and A Strategy for the Future Not much has changed since E.O. Wilson pointed out how little we know of Earth’s species in 1985. This book offers a vision and a strategy for changing all that. The first current, unapologetic look at morphology and descriptive taxonomy that points out their incredible importance to science and society, this book frames one of the most constructive responses to biodiversity crises. It is a call to action for the taxonomy and museum communities to come together and to organize, plan, innovate, and initiate the most ambitious period of exploration in the long history of taxonomy.

This paper proposes a new taxonomy of monetary regimes defined by the choice and clarity of the nominal anchor. The regimes are as follows: (i) monetary nonautonomy, (ii) weak anchor, (iii) money anchor, (iv) exchange rate peg, (v) full-fledged inflation targeting, (vi) implicit price stability anchor, and (vii) inflation targeting lite. This taxonomy captures the commitment-discretion tradeoffs that lie at the heart of choosing a monetary regime. During the last 15 years the world has moved toward monetary regimes with less discretion. Empirical analysis suggests that country regime choices reflect the level of financial and economic development and recent inflation history.

A New Taxonomy provides a path-breaking analysis of the global "BigLaw" industry, identifying seven distinct species of law firm business model - their historic roots, future prospects, strengths and weaknesses, and the specific management techniques, priorities, and perspectives they require. Written with analytic rigor but an urbane and engaging style, it brings new perspective to a globally important industry, clarifying the law firm business landscape as never before. Here's what a few people are saying: "Wow! What an incredibly insightful and valuable work on taxonomy. Really, really makes sense on so many levels. I have read it twice now, and am incorporating so many of your ideas into what we need to do;" (Managing Partner, AmLaw25); and "My test of a good business book is simple; does it provide context that clarifies your thinking? This book does. It's a good one. It paints the BigLaw order of battle in vivid colors on a broad canvas. It helps you see the whole battlefield, not just the skirmishes." (from the Foreword by David Morley, Global Managing Partner of Allen & Overy The author is a lawyer and the President of Adam Smith, Esq., an industry-leading management consultancy to law firms and the legal industry around the globe. He has written for or been quoted in: The New York Times; The Wall Street Journal; Fortune, Bloomberg; and other publications too numerous to mention, and is a sought-after speaker at law firm retreats and legal industry conferences around the world. Previously, he practiced securities law for nearly two decades in New York. Bruce was educated at Princeton University (BA magna cum laude in economics) and at Stanford Law School (JD). A native Manhattanite, he lives on New York's Upper West Side with his wife and their dog. KIRKUS FEATURED REVIEW An analytically rigorous but accessible guide to the shifting world of Big Law.MacEwen has built a strong reputation within the legal industry as an innovative thinker. He practiced law for years in New York, founded the popular website AdamSmithEsq.com and has written for numerous periodicals about legal issues. In his second book, he parses "Big Law" into its elemental, commercial parts, detailing the basic categories of law firms, including "Global Players," "Capital Markets" and "Boutiques." He proceeds in the spirit of biological taxonomy, linking his approach to the Linnaean method of classifying different types of natural life. He aims to use the taxonomy not only to describe these firms, but also to demonstrate the evolving nature of competition in the legal sphere: "I believe an analogy to biological classification is useful...because there's competition within species (between individual firms who are essentially alike) as well as competition across species (between, e.g., global firms and boutiques)." For the firms themselves, understanding these classifications, and their places within them, is necessary to gauge their target audiences, and to market themselves effectively to prospective clients. The author deftly presents each of the seven types, highlighting its unique characteristics, its advantages and disadvantages, and its "managerial priorities." He concludes with an engaging, original view about the future of law firm competition, partly inspired by Stephen Jay Gould's "punctuated equilibria theory": "We have enjoyed a long period of stasis, but now we may be at the start of a period of intense speciation, with new forms of life emerging-some of which will prove adaptive and survive and others of which will be rejected by the antibodies of the marketplace." Even for the nonexpert, MacEwen's prose is clear and mercifully free of gratuitous jargon.A sharp, concise meditation on the business of law, and by extension, an important commentary on the state of the economy as a whole.

The Global Financial Crisis unleashed changes in the operating and regulatory environments for large international banks. This paper proposes a novel taxonomy to identify and track business model evolution for the 30 Global Systemically Important Banks (G-SIBs). Drawing from banks' reporting, it identifies strategies along four dimensions -consolidated lines of business and geographic orientation, and the funding models and legal entity structures of international operations. G-SIBs have adjusted their business models, especially by reducing market intensity. While G-SIBs have maintained international orientation, pressures on funding models and entity structures could affect the efficiency of capital flows through the bank channel.

Academic literature used to lack a taxonomy regarding the types of repeatable structures and approaches that incumbent companies can use in order to deal with frequently business model threatening open innovation developments – threats that are often facilitated by start-up companies. The course of investigation provides a clustering taxonomy for these structures, so-called: corporate open innovation initiatives. Subsequently, the validity is tested by an in-depth analysis of Germany's 500 biggest companies along with 50 biggest banks and 30 biggest insurances. Furthermore, multiple case studies with industry experts show applicable management's best practices. Finally, a management framework is developed, which aims to be a summarizing tool for practitioners and researchers in order to define a suitable corporate strategy for creating an own corporate open innovation initiative.

Motivated by the explosion of molecular data on humans-particularly data associated with individual patients-and the sense that there are large, as-yet-untapped opportunities to use this data to improve health outcomes, Toward Precision Medicine explores the feasibility and need for "a new taxonomy of human disease based on molecular biology" and develops a potential framework for creating one. The book says that a new data network that integrates emerging research on the molecular makeup of diseases with clinical data on individual patients could drive the development of a more accurate classification of diseases and ultimately enhance diagnosis and treatment. The "new taxonomy" that emerges would define diseases by their underlying molecular causes and other factors in addition to their traditional physical signs and symptoms. The book adds that the new data network could also improve biomedical research by enabling scientists to access patients' information during treatment while still protecting their rights. This would allow the marriage of molecular research and clinical data at the point of care, as opposed to research information continuing to reside primarily in academia. Toward Precision Medicine notes that moving toward individualized medicine requires that researchers and health care providers have access to very large sets of health- and disease-related data linked to individual patients. These data are also critical for developing the information commons, the knowledge network of disease, and ultimately the new taxonomy.
