Phantom subspecies: the wood bison Bison bison "athabascae" Rhoads 1897 is not a valid taxon, but an ecotype / Valerius Geist.

Title: Phantom subspecies: the wood bison Bison bison "athabascae" Rhoads 1897 is not a valid taxon, but an ecotype / Valerius Geist.
Author(s): Geist, Valerius.
Date: 1991.
In: Arctic. (1991.), Vol. 44(4) (1991)
Abstract: Reappraisal of bison taxonomy in light of claimed inadequacy of criteria employed by Rhoads in identification of Bison bison "athabascae" as subspecies. Argues that there is therefore no taxonomic justification for proposed extermination of "hybrid bison" of Wood Buffalo National Park.
