O topónimo tejo na paleontologia portuguesa

Translated title of the contribution: The toponym tagus in portuguese palaeontology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Since the nineteenth century seven new species of three invertebrates, two microfossils and two fossil plants were defined using the toponym of the Tagus River. Although not much cited in the geological literature, the names of these taxa comply, in general, with the rules of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN) and the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (ICBN) and must be formally considered as valid names.
