  6. Re: Tangs by another name

    So how does one know which common name to put first?

    Given the root of this idea is nomenclature, and in honour of our old pal Carl Linnaeus, I might suggest listing the latin name first (Genus species) and the give the list of common names, starting with the most common after. Ironically, Linnaeus is known by several variations of his name. Why is Linnaeus important within the context of this thread? He came up with the idea of scientific binomial nomenclature that allows us to classify animals (and plants) and use a common name rather than a confusing mess of common names.

    Re: Tangs by another name

    My sentiments exactly, but if you want to be ridiculed at every utterance just start using the genus and species in your discussions. Fish are one thing,
    just watch peoples eyes roll into the back of their heads when you start talking about invertebrates. However I will persevere as I believe it adds clarity and the more you use them the more common and universal they become.

  8. Re: Tangs by another name

    I completely agree, but have trouble remembering my own name most of the time.

  9. Re: Tangs by another name

    good points and I will incorporate them into the list.. please pardon if I delete some of the other posts here. I am fringing on 13000 characters.. the max a post can hold and I want to keep the list together as I may have to split it to make it work. keep the suggestions coming though.. I will clean it up later

    Re: Tangs by another name

    Once the list is compiled, it might be a good article, or list to move into the soon to be incorporated 'library' section. My understanding is that the library could hold PDF's. The format would be better for referencing than the threads. Great use of a thread to start it off!

    Re: Tangs by another name

    Zebrasoma desjardinii - Red Sea Sailfin Tang or Dejardin's Sailfin Tang
