Emporio Celestial de Conocimientos Benévolos

"El Emporio celestial de conocimientos benévolos es una cierta enciclopedia china ficcionada por el escritor argentino Jorge Luis Borges en el ensayo El idioma analítico de John Wilkins. (...) Dice Borges en dicho relato: '(...) notoriamente no hay clasificación del universo que no sea arbitraria y conjetural. La razón es muy simple: no sabemos qué cosa es el universo'. (...) Esta lista, cuyo 'descubrimiento' Borges atribuye a Franz Kuhn, ha originado una multiplicidad de comentarios filosóficos y literarios, como el inicio del prefacio de Las palabras y las cosas, de Michel Foucault.

Classification of the Recent Crustacea

"This volume is an attempt to provide the reader, whether a seasoned systematist or a beginning student, with a glimpse into the enormous variety of extant crustaceans. The sheer number of categories that humans have constructed to contain and order this group is some indication of the incredible amount of morphological diversity they exhibit. But this is only a small part of the overall picture.

Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans

"We present an updated classification for the entire Crustacea Decapoda, listing all known families and genera organized by higher taxonomic groups and including estimates of the number of species in every genus. All taxonomic names are also linked to the verified literature in which they were described, the first compilation of its kind for the Decapoda. To arrive at this compilation, we began with the classification scheme provided by Martin & Davis (2001) for extant families, updated the higher classification and included the fossil taxa.
