It seems strange. I never heard of such a thing... I wounder what is? A familiy, a class, an order?

I think it's a translation thing ;)

Just remember. Poison thinks about the question in Turkish, then translates her reply into English. Then you read the English reply, then translate it into Romanian (I think that's what you speak?). The language barrier is easily overcome, but minor translation problems still arise.

Yeah but that is latin. Don't we all speak the same latin?

Language evolves, even if it is dead. In England, it is haemoglobin. In America, it is hemoglobin. No one's going to translate and spell exactly as you do.

That's also why sometimes questions are misunderstood when they are posted. It seems there are a lot of individuals from the Netherlands on here, doesn't it?

Usually if a European posts a question, anyone from Europe can understand it perfectly. If an American posts, other Americans are able to understand better. There's nothing wrong with it, and we should all try and post. But that's just the way it is.

Yeah, nothing wrong with it at all. LET THE POSTING BEGIN!!! :o

Hehe. It was just a friendly reminder to not poke at the way people post here. As long as the point gets across, no worries!

I wasn't poking fun, I just was trying to put out a reminder that everyone isn't from the USA as well. No problem :wink:

I know you're not ;)

But we have had members in the past that would say things like, "It's not hemoglobin, it's haemoglobine!"

Divisio is a neutral taxonomic category especially used is plant systematics. I mean it doesn't have an actual place. It can be everywhere. Some kind of grouping. It is not used so often.
I think 'divisio' IS in latin, at least that's what our proffessors said. :)
