How Many Species? A Study Says 8.7 Million, but It’s Tricky

How Many Species? A Study Says 8.7 Million, but It’s Tricky | Animals Make Life Better | Scoop.it

These are certainly not the last two species that scientists will ever discover. Each year, researchers report more than 15,000 new species, and their workload shows no sign of letting up. “Ask any taxonomist in a museum, and they’ll tell you they have hundreds of species waiting to be described,” says Camilo Mora, a marine ecologist at the University of Hawaii. http://www.pedegru.com

The legacy of a renowned breeder…Mr Daniel C. Gainey, Part 1 of 2 | Pedegru

The legacy of a renowned breeder…Mr Daniel C. Gainey, Part 1 of 2 | Pedegru | Animals Make Life Better | Scoop.it
In Jimmie Dean's words: "The most significant thing Dan C. Gainey did for the Arabian breed was to leave behind a ranch full of Gainey horses. He established quality and refinement as the Gainey trademark. He fixed a type."
Pedegru's insight:

Inspiring…that’s how I felt this morning. I’d been thinking about all the people who’ve contributed to what we think of as the modern-day Arabian horse and my thoughts ran to one person in particular Dan Gainey and Gainey Arabians. As I read up on him I was even more inspired than I expected so decided to create a history of him on Pedegru – especially since that’s what Pedegru is for! Here are Parts 1 & 2 of Dan’s commitment to and genuine, abiding passion for Arabians.
