Hello! The book I want to share this week is Anna Pavord's 'The Naming of Names'. Its an engrossing in-depth look into the origins of formal taxonomy, from its origins with Theophrastus in ancient Greece to its climax with the Linnaean system of binomial nomenclature. For anyone who encounters Latin names and wonders about their meanings and origins, this is a great read! Have you read it? Tell me what you though below!
