“Naming Nature”

Posted on April 14 2011

Author and artist James Prosek will join evolutionary biologists and others from Yale and the Smithsonian Institution at Yale’s Whitney Humanities Center on Friday for a symposium titled “Naming Nature: A conversation on the nature, uses and limitations of biological taxonomies.” As Nancy Burton of Agence France-Presse reports, it’s all about trying to answer the question Is the Linnean system still useful? and to determine whether the new PhyloCode — which traces ancestry through molecular biology — should replace it.
