Names have power and meaning, and many scientific names have surprising stories behind their origin.

Four scientists: an Evolutionary Ecologist (John Jaenike), a Molecular Biologist (Elaine Sia), an Astronomer (Judith Pipher) and a Chemist (Lauren VanGelder), will share the history of scientific nomenclature in their disciplines and discuss our constant struggle to organize, classify and name everything in the universe.
