Default Re: Scientific Nomenclature

Just to add in my thoughts, I can recognise the names of some newts and salamanders by their scientific names, but there is no way I can remember how to spell them (yet!)

I've just about got my head round Ambystoma mexicanum!

A lot of people on her abbreviate the scientific names too, so I get confused as to what animal they are referring to. In time I guess I'll get to be able to understand and spell the names.

I have some Alpine newts, but I can never remember the full scientific name for them, apuana comes into it somewhere I think!
