Dear Colleagues!

During my yearly pilgrimage to the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin,
I found quite unexpectedly this little jewel in the Museum Shop.

The title of the book is: “The Art of Naming”. It not only explains
how to give names to new organisms, but it is full with interesting
and curious anecdotes about the process. Being this a German book,
it even tells how Herr Hitler meddled with taxonomy. There is also
an interesting chapter called: “I name this species after my dear wife…”.

Enjoy!
