Notes:
Latin names - frequently unpronounceable, all too often wrong and always a tiny puzzle to unravel - have been annoying the layman since they first became formalised as scientific terms in the 18th century. This book explores their history, celebrating poetic nature and revealing how naturalists sometimes get things so terribly wrong.
