      Let’s study while play 😉

      We know that it is hard to remember scientific name (binomial nomenclature), so c’mon let’s play with it. Write a real and available scientific name you can remember (can be plants, animals, microbes) and the common name for it, but not that easy, you must start your name after the last character of the previous post… Understood? Confused? Aarrggh, I know I am bad at making sentences 🙁 😆 Well, see the example:

      #1 post: Hippocampus erectu[b]s[/b] = Lined seahorse; northern seahorse (U.S.A.)

      #2 post: Sagittaria latifoli[b]a[/b] = Broadleaf Arrowhead, Wapato

      #3 post: Aspergillus fumigatu[b]s[/b] =

      etc.

      Don’t forget to write the name in proper way as Carollus Linnaeus told 😉 If you have figure for your species, it would be nice 🙂

      Ok, I start with this one: Panax ginsen[b]g[/b] = Korean ginseng

      I follow with Giardia lamblia.
      Not any other name its a Single celled flagellated protozoa causing the famous (in Canada at least) Beaver fever.
      More about it here. A rather nasty pathogen that has caused a few epidemics by contaminating public water systems.

      Salmonella enterica subsp enterica ser. Emek.

      One of the few thousands serovars of the Salmonella genus. Nothing special but it gives a more challenging last letter. Otherwise with Latin we will soon have exhausted species with names starting with S, A, I and E…

      Aaptosyax grypus

      Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes)

      A large fast-swimming predator, feeding on fish of the middle and the upper water levels. Although most common along the Thai-Lao border at the mouth of the Mun River, its numbers have drastically decreased in recent years. This is perhaps due to dam construction or excessive gill netting, to which active pursuit predators, like this species, are particularly vulnerable (Ref. 12693). Undertakes upstream migration at the same time as Probarbus sp. in December-February (Ref. 37770) which may be related to spawning activity (Ref. 9497). Attains over 30 kg (Ref. 9497).

      I don’t think so… For me, it’s a lot harder to memorise something without actually knowing what it is and what it does… Understanding always helps you remember something… I reccomend the same thing with those insect names: learn something, at least 1-2 lines about each insect, look at a picture, anything to actually add utility to your learning

      PPS: So, what exactly is Entamoeba coli 😆

      From wikipedia:

      Entamoeba coli is a non-pathogenic species of entamoebid that is important clinically in humans only because it can be confused with Entamoeba histolytica, which is pathogenic, on microscopic examination of stained stool specimens. A simple finding of Entamoeba coli trophozoites or cysts in a stool specimen requires no treatment.

      Systematics:

      Kingdom: Protista

      Phylum: Amoebozoa

      Order: Entamoebida

      Genus: Entamoeba

      Species: E. coli

      Iguana iguana

      The green iguana is a reptile found throughout Central and South America.
      While it is not generally an endangered animal in some places, like Belize, it is because of hunting. Large females are the favorite individuals to harvest. Unfortunately, these same individuals are critical to the reproductive success of the species. As a food source, the green iguana is also known as the "Bamboo Chicken".

      Icerya purchasi Maskell – Cottony cushion scale

      This insect is a true bug in the Family Margarodidae. It is native to Australia where acacia plants serve as its host. Around 1870 it was accidentally introduced to California on imported acacia plants. The insect successfully colonized its new land and discovered a new host plant, citrus. The insect caused huge damage to the citrus plants in California which resulted in great economic damage.

      Riley, the Federal Entomologist at the time, sent some folks over to Australia to look for natural enemies of the scale insect. They found, brought back and released a ladybug (Rhodalia cardinalis) and a parasitic fly (Cryptochaetum iceryae). The effort was a great success and is considered the first scientifically driven and institutionally backed biological control effort.

      Unfortunately, some of the citrus growers in California thought the success was so magnificent that they packed up some ladybugs on citrus leaves and mailed them to Florida, where there was no scale present. However, when growers opened the shipment of ladybugs in Florida, scale was released with them and, since then, cottony cushion scale has been present in Florida.

      Cottony cushion scale is now widespread throughout the world and can be found pretty much where ever citrus is growing.

      Because they have spotted the problem with your last post?

      Since 2002 the name Salmonella enteritids should not be used anymore. The correct name is Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Enteritidis.
