    1. AD P1 Scietific names and taxonomy/classifications of organisms are important because it is a language which is universal. If someone who speaks English says elephant, someone who speaks French wouldn't understand that. However, if the person who spoke English said it's scientific name, then the person who speaks French could also understand. Another reason is that here in the U.S.A we call animals different things. For example, we sometimes all a puma a mountain lion and a mountain lion a cougar. This is resolved by them having the same scientific name.

  2. Scientific names and Taxonomy/classification of organisms is important because everyone would know what animal someone is talking about if they say their scientific name. It is universal. Some people may not know the name of an animal in english, so we use the scientific name. For example,someone in Russia may not know how to say puma in English, so they would use Puma concolor. Puma concolor is the scientific name for puma,mountain lion,and cougar.

    1. Scientific names as well as Taxonomy/classification are important because they are the simplified way to refer to organisms universally, where ever in the world to avoid confusion. An example of a scientific name in which we used in class would be a Homo sapien which means human. This scientific name can be used for example if you ever find yourself in a foreign country and do not know the translation to say human in that foreign language, then it would be in your advantage to have knowledge of how to say the scientific name of human which is Homo sapien.

    2. JG P:7 i agree with dante because you don't always know what some things mean so it makes it easier to figure out

    3. ZC P3: Isabel I agree with you. The only thing I would add is that most scientific names are either greek or latin

    4. HS P4: I agree with her how she said the important is because they are simplified way to refer to organisms universally. Also how she brought up an example of the scientific name for human (Homo sapien) she came up with a good point about when in aa foreign place with a foreign language then you can use the scientific name. She just had to add the greek and latin format :)

  3. Scientific names and Taxonomy/Classification is important because they help people have a better understanding of which type of animal it is because of there scientific name. The panda has a scientific name in which people would understand, the Ailuropoda melanoleuca it is. And I am sure that people from around the world can understand what type of animal it is because of its scientific name.

  5. Scientific names and Taxonomy/classification of organisms are important because it is a universal way of communicating with scientists. No matter what language certain scientists speak, they all know the set scientific name of every organism. One scientific name that we used is Melittobia digitata, the WOWbug.

    1. JJ P3: I agree with Mark because of how scientific names and taxonomy of organisms is a 'universal way of communication with scientists' and that is true, no matter where that scientist is, they'll be able to know what animal another scientist is talking about with the names and classification of the animal.

  6. SG P:3 Scientific names and Taxonomy/classification of organisms are important because it is a universal name for the animal. Scientists who speak different languages will be able to understand an organisms name even if both scientists don't speak the same language. One example of a scientific name is Homo sapiens which means humans.

    2. RZ:P3 I agree with sophia because an organism is not just studied in one part of the world so to translate all the animals names like a grizzly bear would be confusing and if they were to meet up and speak about the organisms they would know what they were talking about

  7. AT P7: Scientific names and taxonomy/classification of organisms are important because they are a universal language that every scientist understands. It is especially useful when scientists who speak different languages are trying to communicate with one another, An example of a scientific name of an organism is Puma concolor. This means mountain lion.

  8. NG P7: Scientific names and taxonomy/classification of organisms are important because they help tell each animal apart. Scientific names are general names that all scientists understand no matter what language they speak. An example that we used in class is Puma concolor. This means mountain lion/cougar/puma. It's universal so you don't get confused with different names in different languages.

  10. JJ P3: Scientific names and taxonomy/classification of organisms are important for some reasons, including to specify that organism in a different way using different information about the organism. Scientific names use 2 Latin or Greek words so that scientists would be able to know what that organism is. Taxonomy is how the organism is classified, based on the history and specific information of the organism. An example of a scientific name we used in class would be Homo sapiens to describe humans.

  11. EL P3: Scientific names and taxonomy/classification of organisms are of importance because they distinguish differences in organisms. Scientific names are universal, meaning that all scientists have the ability to communicate about different beings. This becomes very helpful in instances when people of different languages need to communicate. An example of a scientific name we used in class is Puma concolor, which is a cougar.

    It is important because the scientific name can help scientist from anywhere know what they are talking about. for any organisms and animals the person would know what it is. Say someone who did not speak English came here they would know what the organisms or animal was. One scientific name is Chelonioide which is the sea turtle!

  16. LT P3: The scientific name is important because if you are from a different country and you don't know the name of the animal you can refer back to the scientific name. Also it is the name for everyone to call it because the scientific name never changes. One scientific name that we used in class is the Puma concolor or the mountain lion.

  17. KQ,P.3 The scientific name is important because in different places they might call the animal that you're thinking of something else, but if you call it the scientific name they will know it because the scientific name always stay the same.

  18. SC p4 i think scientific name are important because if there is a large number of animals but you can't name every one of them then the scientific name can help you tell what kind of animal it is

    Scientific and taxonomy names are important because in different places of the world they have different names for different species using a scientific name makes it easy for everyone to understand and know what someone is talking about An example of one we used in class is Homo sapiens in Latin it means wise person it is used for us humans.

    Scientific nad taxonomy names are important because all scientists can communicate with scientific names. The scientific names are greek or latin. So even though we have are own names for the animals the scientific names are used everywhere in the world.

  22. MO P:7 Scientific names are important because they are used as an universal language. For example say that I spoke Spanish and Joe Lambiase spoke English. Normally, we wouldn't understand each other normally with our native languages. However through the Scientific name, we can communicate. An example of a scientific name of an animal we used in class was the Lumbriculus variegatus or the Black worm in English.

    Scientific and taxonomy names are important because they help scientists communicate around the world about new species. Scientific names are usually Latin or Greek. One scientific name we learned in class was Puma concolor, which is the scientific name for the mountain lion, cougar, and panther. Scientific names are very useful for everyone.

  24. MM:P8: Scientific and taxonomy names are important because everyone in the world can use these names without confusion. For example, a cougar, is also known as the mountain lion, puma, panther. You can see how there would be a lot of confusion! It's scientific name, Puma concolor, is used to avoid confusion. With this 'language' everyone can communicate with ease. :)

  27. AT P7: All scientific names are either greek or latin, but they can't be both. We use scientific names and taxonomy so we don't get confused with different animal. Just like the cougar, it is referred to as a mountain lion, a puma, and a panther. With the help of taxonomy and scientific names we know the are all the same by their name, Puma concolor.

  28. MC: P4 I believe study the Taxonomy/classification is important because it provides a universal name for all organisms. A scientific name we use in class is LUMBRICULUS VARIEGATUS the scientific term we use to classify blackworms. The proper way to write a scientific term is to write the term in all capitals with no spaces.

  30. ES: P1 Taxonomy/classification is the branch of science concerned with classification, especially of organisms. This is important to our science classes because we have to know what to call the organisms we observe during class, like the LUMBRICULUS VARIEGATUS, which is the blackworm.

  32. ZC: P7: Scientific names and Taxonomy/Classification is important because it helps classify what type of animal someone is talking/learning about. scientific names are universal and/or greek or latin. For example, if I didn't someone's native language, I could still communicate with that person using a Scientific name, such as PUMA concolor, or puma/mountain-lion/panther.

    Scientific names and Taxonomy are important because, people from around the world don't always speak English and might not understand for instance what a Tiger is. However, Scientific names and Taxonomy change all that. Taxonomy is in Latin or Greek. That makes Taxonomy a universal language. For example Lumbriculus Variegatus , which is the blackworm.

  38. AR: P7: Scientific names and Taxonomy is a universal language its a language that everyone will understand that's why it so important. For example in class we never knew that puma, cougar and mountain lion are the same animal. The scientific name clarifies that. The scientific name for those that animal is Puma Concolor.

    Scientific names and Taxonomy/ Classification is very important when you are talking about organisms. There are so many different languages in the world so scientific names are universal when scientists are speaking with each other; there is no language barrier. Taxonomy help scientist to learn more about the overall scheme of the organism. The scientific name for the puma is felis concolor. In English the puma is also referred to as cougar and mountain lion.

  53. Scientific names and Taxonomy classifications are very important because not all people know the same language and when foreign people try to say an organism's name, we would not understand it. This can be very important when scientists come together to discuss. No one would know what the others are talking about. Scientific names are always either Latin or Greek. In science, we were assigned to find the differences between a puma, cougar, and a mountain lion. They are all the same thing and referred to as Puma concolor, because they are all the same thing although known by different names.

  54. Scientific names are important because these names are used all throughout the world. They are helpful becuase people have different names for different animals. So when you are communicating with someone and they don't know what animal your talking about you can just use the scientific name.

    Scientific names are important because it can give the organism a specific name while being able to use it as part of a universal language. For example LUMBRICULUS VARIEGATUS which is the black worm.It helps with an animal with many different english names like the puma/cougar/mountain lion it can narrow it down to one name that can be understood in any languages.

    Scientific names are important because not all scientists speak the same language. If a Russian scientist is referring to and animal in Russian, and a German Scientist is referring to the same animal but in German, the 2 scientists may not realize they are talking about the same animal . However, if the scientists use the organisms scientific name, they realize that they are talking about the same animal and will get more research done. One of the species that we studied was the WOWbug, or the Melittobia digitata if we where using the scientific name.
