An edited volume arising from addresses presented at the Linnean Society during the afternoon of 17 July 1998.

A special meeting was held to celebrate Colin Patterson, a long-serving member of the Society and an outstanding scientist. He was a pioneering advocate of the methods of biological classification now known as cladistics, the world’s leading palaeoichthyologist, a well-respected researcher in the field of molecular systematics, and an effective and original communicator of evolutionary theory.

Colin Patterson was awarded the Zoological Society of London’s Scientific Medal in 1972.

He worked at The Natural History Museum, London until his retirement in 1993.

This special edition of The Linnean is a written transcript of the meeting in 1998 and concludes with the presentation to Colin of a posthumous award of the Linnean Gold Medal.

In addition to the presented talks, five additional written contributions are included.

Edited by Peter L. Forey, Brian G. Gardiner and Christopher J. Humphries.
