K-D-W, Wassup Contents

 

It does not aim to be comprehensive of whole Killifish research output (it presents only a subjective selection of articles, primarily those being coherent with Killi-Data focus on names, systematics and nomenclature)
It is not regular (it will be produced when time permits and when a significant number of articles is published, not too many articles so that the reading is short, not too few articles so that the service is real and not too frequent)
It separates clearly, the «selection of publications» with (1) a full neutral synthesis for each major publication, (2) a quick snapshot of contents for other publications, (3) the results of new collecting trips, and, within a paragraph titled «View from the chair», personal, but impartial and balanced comments raised from some of those selected publications in view of the translation of their results into Killi-Data, and not as opinions or judgements on the quality of those research papers
It mentions for each «selected publication» (listed as last-in first-out) the source and importantly a link to abstract online, but not the full reference (which is anyway online)
It does not contain each time an Editorial but it may also contain a “Guest Editorial” from key experts from time to time.

 

That's all, folks… please, aquarist-collectors, note that a small report of your latest trip with 10-20 lines (participants, date, country) including your findings in terms of species collected, remarks on ecology and any other short comments for future trips are extremely appreciated by K-D-W readers !
