Species 200

In 2015, the Swiss Society of Systematic celebrates 200 years of biodiversity research, by presenting, on a poster, 200 animal and plant species described during the last two centuries by researchers based in Switzerland. We hope that this poster, designed for students, researchers, natural science enthusiasts and also the general public, will make known the importance of the description of new species and highlight the dynamism of Switzerland in this field of research.
