Science makes progress through a constant process of re-evaluation. Revision and error correction are inevitable and generally healthy for the advancement of science. In biodiversity literature, re-evaluation of earlier work can lead to new conclusions, such as a revised taxonomic determination. When significant errors are discovered, conscientious authors may correct the record by publishing an erratum or corrigendum.
