Please send any feedback to me at
a descriptive subject which I can easily distinguish from spam.) I
appreciate all constructive comments on how to make these pages more
pedagogically and scientifically useful, more entertaining, and clearer.
I particularly like to see
- Corrections of errors.
- Contributions of additional curious names. Please include as much
information as possible about the name and why it is curious. Don't
assume, for example, that I will recognize that it is named after a
particular rock singer. If you do not want your name mentioned
in the acknowledgements, please let me know.
- Illustrations. I would like to add illustrations to these pages. If
you have any that are relevant, especially pictures of the more
obscure organisms and of organisms whose names relate to their
appearance, I would be grateful for copies.
- Additional information about any of the names here.
- Links to good related pages.
I have collected relatively few of these names on my own. The people
who contribute feedback deserve the credit for the vast majority of the
content of this site.
