Newest Field Revealed video

 

Here's a little video about animal taxonomic names and Zoobank that stems from a recent visit to the Field Museum by Ellinor Michel of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN). She and several of the scientific staff of the Field Museum discuss types, taxonomic names, and the importance of names as anchors on which to hang information about the world's vast biodiversity.
