SPECIALIST GROUP MEETING 11:00–16:30 Friday 7 September 2018

Plenary Meeting of the Taxonomy and Systematics Committee of the Linnean Society of London

This meeting will bring together educators, content producers and academics to explore the ways in which we communicate the importance of taxonomy and systematics in different settings and to different audiences.

This day meeting can be divided into four themes.

  • DIGITAL MEDIA - How can we make best use of video and audio content?
  • MUSEUMS AND LEARNING CENTRES - What are we doing to engage our visitors with the naming of the natural world?
  • FORMAL EDUCATION - With such a tiny part of formal education being dedicated to taxonomy and systematics, how can we communicate our message most efficiently?
  • IDENTIFICATION RESOURCES - Are the days of searching through Systema Naturae gone and replaced with apps?

A small selection of posters of engagement work will be presented throughout in the Library. You can submit your poster for review by email:

Speaker details TBA
