World’s unknown species ‘can be named’

3 posts in this topic

Most of the world's plant and animal species could be named before they go extinct, claim researchers.

Writing in the journal Science, the researchers said it could be achieved this century.

This is largely due to an increase in taxonomists - the people who describe species new to science.

What do they do in the meantime? Unknown arachnid 475582

Surely they index prospective new species in some fashion before conventional naming, I guess.
