International Biodiversity Day: Naming Nature 2
The Future Belongs to the Tropics
In 2017, a Naming Nature workshop gathered some of Malaysia’s most experienced taxonomists with a group of young, enthusiastic researchers. They clamoured for a system to better handle identification, digitisation and communication within the community.
These issues still remain unresolved.
Naming Nature 2 will invite further debate with the aim of crafting a future path to address these problems for Malaysia, including taxonomic challenges, specimen digitisation and data stewardship.
