    There's no accounting for why some names are written as they are. :confused: 
  5. That's why biologists need to study grammar! ;) 
  6. One problem is that there seems to be no rhyme or reason to hyphenations. Capitalization of names is fairly consistent, though.
    A dose of Latin doesn't hurt, either :) .

  7. A bird by any other name....! Thank you both Larry and Nick. I guess biology and grammar both involve some form of dissection :D
