Names per year

Introduction

This page lists the number of taxon names proposed per year. The counts only consider names that are validly published under the ICNP. Counts in parentheses refer to the number of such names that are currently treated as the correct name in LPSN. The year given is the year of the valid publication of each name.
For the approximate number of taxonomic proposals per country see the page on corresponding authors. For the overall number of taxon names, see the page on numbers in LPSN. For the number of species per genus see the page on the largest genera.
