Most of the members voted for the current name of "Biodiversity and Eevolutionary Biology" in 1998. The present statutes were decided at the the conference at Jena on 21st of September in 2000. In 2014 the section decided to introduce a fee for members at the members' assembly.
The Section set up its own statutes (German pdf).
