Recently, a group of systematists has proposed replacing the Linnean system with the Phylo Code based explicitly onphylogeny (Cantino & de Queiroz 2004). They claim that the PhyloCode is simple and will properly reflect evolutionary connections between species, thus promoting stability and clarity in nomenclature. However, critics say that the Linnean system does effectively organize and convey information about taxonomic categories, and that replacing this system does not justify redefining millions of species and higher taxonomic levels (Harris 2005).
