Taxonomy in the News: Taxonomy, the naming crisis

It is always a good thing to be covered by the news, so no complaint about today's article about taxonomy in the Independent.

Besides that, it is as usually depressing to read a necrology of a science that seems one to make the news with morbid reports, such as the decrease of taxonomist, the increasing underfunding, the lack of universities training taxonomists.

There is so much happening in and around taxonomy, but the speakers for taxonomy seem to be conditioned to mourn and black painting, complaining about the technophile funders. A little bit more creativity and optimism in communication of our science would not do any damage.
