Scientific Naming for Beginners - Online
About the event
Have you ever wondered why everything has two names – the common one we usually use in everyday life, and a scientific one, usually made up of two (or more) Latin words? Do you find the scientific way of naming species daunting?
Join us to discover the simple rules that are used to name animals and plants. Learn how taxonomy is used to classify species - based on the common traits and their evolutionary history. This short talk will give you the confidence to learn the scientific names of common species and how to use them.
