Corresponding authors

General remarks

Within certain limits, the e-mail addresses of corresponding authors provide an indication of the countries of origin of studies on microbial taxonomy. This page lists the top-level domains of e-mail addresses of corresponding authors recorded in LPSN. The number of names and emendations proposed under the ICNP per top-level domain provides an indication of the taxonomic activity of working groups per country. The number of distinct e-mail addresses per top-level domain provides an indication of the number of groups active in microbial taxonomy per country. Please note that the occurrence of the top-level domain "com" is mostly caused by the usage of private e-mail addresses rather than by the activity of microbial taxonomists who are employed by companies. Moreover, please keep in mind that an individual taxonomist may use distinct e-mail addresses throughout her career.
For more numbers please see the LPSN statistics page. For the number of species per genus, see the page on the largest genera. There is also a page on the number of taxon names per year.
