Business & Scientific Names

A good name is important for the success of a business or product. Plenty of information is available on brand names, trademarks, and names of corporate bodies.  In the world of science, there are agencies that have authority over the naming of animals, chemicals, drugs, plants, stars and other things.

In searching for scientific names, also try the keyword "nomenclature" along with your topic, such as "Plants - Nomenclature". Please ask for help if you don't find what you're looking for.
