THIS IS A RE-POST OF SCISHOW NEWS, WITH PHOTOGRAPHS! SORRY TO ALL THOSE WHO WATCHED IT WITHOUT THEM.
Scientists around the world discover about 18,000 new species every year. Each new organism has not only to be found, but also studied, compared, identified and organized -- that's taxonomy, the science of classifying living things and exploring the evolutionary relationships between them. Every May, to celebrate the latest achievements in the field, as well as the birthday of the man who invented it (Swedish scientist Carl Linnaeus), the International Institute for Species Exploration weighs in on the most impressive discoveries of the previous year - the top ten new species of 2013. Who made the list this year? Hank has all the fascinating details in this episode of SciShow.
