Abstract

The complete bibliography of the late Norman I. Platnick is presented. His scientific contribution, published over the course of 39 years, includes almost 12,000 pages in 340 printed publications, including 42 monographs, six books and two edited volumes on subjects ranging from the theory and practice of systematics and historical biogeography to the taxonomy of spiders (Araneae), an online searchable database, the World Spider Catalog, and two children's books. During the past 22 years, he self-published 27 full-color books and three articles on the illustration art of magazine covers, advertisements, and articles from America's ‘Golden Age of Illustration’ (1905–1920).

Introduction

Dr. Norman Ira Platnick, Curator Emeritus at the American Museum of Natural History, New York, passed away on 8 April 2020 in Philadelphia, PA, after a tragic accident. Norm, as he was known to friends and colleagues, was a prolific scientist, publishing almost 12,000 pages in 340 printed publications, including 42 monographs, six books and two edited volumes over the course of his four- and-a-half-decade career (Table 1, Figs 14). He also delivered almost 100 scientific lectures in the U.S. and abroad. This exceptional body of work fundamentally affected several fields (Table 2).

Norm's early work, including the influential ‘Blue Book,’ Systematics and biogeography: Cladistics and vicariance (Nelson and Platnick, 1981; Fig. 2A), and seminal papers on cladistic methods in systematics, biogeography and linguistics, and on the history and philosophy of systematics (e.g., Platnick, 1976a, b, 1977a, b, 1978a, b, c, 1979, 1981a, b, 1982, 1985; Platnick and Cameron, 1977; Nelson and Platnick, 1978, 1980a, b; Platnick and Gaffney, 1978a, b; Platnick and Nelson, 1978, 1984; Platnick and Rosen, 1987), were instrumental in disseminating Hennigian tree-thinking and phylogenetic classification, profoundly influencing systematic biology, historical biogeography, and evolutionary biology more generally. The concept of using monophyletic groups, or clades, sharing evolutionary novelties, or synapomorphies, for classification was the most important event in the discipline since Darwin's theory of evolution, and Norm was among the three or four most important scientists who expanded, refined and explained these ideas to the world. Later works in systematics addressed controversies such as species concepts, three-taxon statements, DNA Barcoding and the PhyloCode (Nelson and Platnick, 1991; Platnick et al., 1996; Platnick and Wheeler, 2000; Wheeler and Platnick, 2000a, b; Lipscomb et al., 2003; Platnick, 2012, 2013a), among others.

In arachnology, the study of spiders and their kin, Norm laid the early framework of spider classification and the Tree of Life (Platnick and Gertsch, 1976; Platnick, 1975, 1977c) and continued to play an active role in resolving spider phylogeny throughout his career (Forster and Platnick, 1984; Platnick and Goloboff, 1985; Forster et al., 1990; Platnick et al., 1991, 2012; Griswold et al., 1999, 2005; Wheeler et al., 2017). Along the way, Norm introduced new techniques, such as scanning electron microscopy, and character systems, such as spinneret morphology (Platnick, 1974, 1990; Platnick et al., 1991, 2012), which forever changed the course of spider systematics. His prodigious monographic revisions and many smaller papers, often coauthored with former AMNH Scientific Assistants, Mohammad U. Shadab, Louis Sorkin, Nadine Dupérré and Lily Berniker (Table 3; Fig. 4A, B, D), who meticulously prepared dissections, illustrations, scanning electron micrographs, and so on, vastly increased knowledge of spider diversity on a global scale, and especially the poorly known fauna of the Southern Hemisphere. An authority on at least ten spider families, Norm described taxa in some 50 of the 120 families currently recognized, spanning the suborders and infraorders, as well as the arachnid order Ricinulei (hooded tick-spiders).

Norm's singular contribution to arachnology, his copious descriptions of arachnids notwithstanding, is undoubtedly the World Spider Catalog, which he created as a unified nomenclatural and taxonomic resource, and updated biannually over the course of two decades (Platnick, 2000–2020). Work on this project began in 1986, with the untimely death of Paolo M. Brignoli, formerly at the University of Aquila, Italy. Spider students had come to depend on Brignoli's (1983) Catalogue of the Araneae described between 1940 and 1981, itself continuing the monumental cataloguing efforts of Roewer's (1942, 1955) Katalog der Araneae von 1758 bis 1940 and Bonnet's (1945, 19551959, 1961) Bibliographia Araneorum, for essential guidance to the enormous taxonomic literature on spiders. Brignoli (1983) filled many of the post-Roewer gaps through 1980, with scattered coverage of later papers as well, and intended to issue supplements at periodic intervals until that was prevented by his death. Fortunately, Norm accepted an invitation from the British Arachnological Society and Manchester University Press to prepare the first supplement to Brignoli (1983). Over the next decade, three volumes of Advances in Spider Taxonomy (Platnick, 1989, 1993, 1998; Fig. 1C, E), collectively 2,500 pages, were published, covering the literature from 1981 through 1995 and including all synonyms, transfers, and re-descriptions from 1940 to 1980. These indispensable volumes became known as the ‘Platnick Catalogs.’ By the end of the 20th century it became obvious that the increasing quantity of taxonomic information could no longer be managed in printed volumes, however. An internet-based solution was required to handle the annual influx of over 300 taxonomic publications with descriptions of ca. 900 new species. Norm began this task with the first online version of his World Spider Catalog in 2000 and continued through 2014, with two updated versions per year from 2002, a total of 28 updates (Platnick, 2000–2020). The catalog was hosted at the AMNH and served as HTML files per family. Upon Norm's retirement in 2014, the Naturhistorisches Museum Bern, Switzerland, took over the World Spider Catalog and converted it to a relational database (World Spider Catalog, 2020). Unlike most other non-vertebrate taxa of comparable diversity, spiders now enjoy a completely up-to-date, online, species-level taxonomic database since 1757 when the first 68 spider species were described by Carl Clerck.

One measure of the impact of Norm's scientific contributions is his 17,790 citations (Table 4), h-index of 55, and i10-index of 207.

The recent publication of a full color volume, Spiders of the World: A Natural History (Platnick, 2020), coauthored with long-term arachnologist collaborators, Rudy Jocqué, Gustavo Hormiga, Robert J. Raven, Martín J. Ramírez and Peter Jäger, several former trainees among them, is a fitting conclusion to a life's work researching and disseminating knowledge of the incredible diversity of spiders.

In his spare time, Norm was interested in the illustration art of magazine covers, advertisements, and articles from America's ‘Golden Age of Illustration' (1905–1920). During the past 22 years, he prepared and published 27 full-color books under the imprint, ‘Enchantment Ink’ (Fig. 1HJ), and three articles on the work of various artists from this period (Platnick, 2014–2020). The books synthesized all that is known about the printed work of their subjects, including full-color images of all known calendars and prints, along with the magazine items (covers, illustrations, and ads), book illustrations, fans, sheet music, jigsaw puzzles, postcards, menus, tradecards, leaflets, needlecases, packets, blotters, boxes, posters, store displays, and die-cuts featuring their work.
