Revisionary Syntheses in Systematics: Dear Colleague: The Cluster for Systematic Biology and Biodiversity Inventories within the Division of Environmental Biology encourages the submission of proposals aimed at synthesizing available and new species-level taxonomic information in the context of providing revisionary treatments and predictive classifications for particular groups of organisms. Such revisionary syntheses in systematics (REVSYS) are the fundamental building blocks of our knowledge of planetary biodiversity. These syntheses accomplish many ends simultaneously: 1. they bring together all the specimens available (or other archival or voucher material), in the world's natural history collections, of a particular group of organisms, so that 2. investigators can compare the attributes of all those specimens, and the distribution of those attributes in space and time, to enable 3. populations of different species to be distinguished from each other, and 4. questions about how those species are related to each other (i.e., what natural groups of species exist) to be addressed, so that 5. highly predictive classifications can be established, which allow us to generalize from those few attributes that have been studied to the far larger universe of attributes that remain to be investigated. Titles of proposals emphasizing such Revisionary Syntheses in Systematics should be prefaced with
