baby sponge mushroom

Scientists marveled at the discovery of a mushroom in Malaysia in 2010, which looks like a sponge and can be recovered like a sponge after holding it. So they directly named the mushroom after the sponge baby Spongiforma squarepantsii, and translated it into a more pleasant sponge baby mushroom.


It's important to name a species

CSIRO expert on bees and wasps, Dr Juanita Rodriguez (Dr Juanita Rodriguez), said naming new species could be interesting, and there was a serious aspect to studying them.

Dr. Rodriguez said :" We have discovered a new species of spider bee (spider wasp), which was found only in an area that was severely affected by jungle fires this summer, so now we can carefully monitor its recovery. "

Spiderman bee venom may be useful in treating Alzheimer's and epilepsy, but most Australian spider bee species remain unknown to the scientific community.

The color, shape or other characteristics of the new species are commonly used to name the new species, but the use of names is also very common and does not require the consent of the person concerned, and this behavior is also in line with the requirements of the International Act on Act. Scientists used to use the name of the discoverer as a memorial, but since the 18th century, scientists have used the name of celebrities to name species. Carl Linnai (Carl Linnaeus), the father of taxonomy, used this way to please wealthy patrons and get sponsorship. Some scientists say giving species an eye-catching name can attract more attention in order to better protect them.

In addition, taxonomists have constructed the framework structure of species by naming, so that we can understand and record the various species on Earth, and constantly understand the connections and changes. And this naming system allows us to understand and manage the Earth's ecology more sustainably, especially in the current era of global pollution and rising climate warming, naming organisms is more important than ever.
