The Linnaean collections hold many types of specimens (the first member of species to be scientifically described) for taxonomic study. Making use of the Linnaean collection online, this worksheet focuses on Hymenoptera (including bees, wasps and ants). It looks at the importance of the hymenopterans, particularly the honey bee, both ecologically and economically, and studies their taxonomic rank. Curriculum links include classification, taxonomy, using and constructing keys, binomial nomenclature, making valid and reliable observations, type specimen and species. This resource was produced by the Linnean Society. Founded in 1788, the Linnean Society is the world’s oldest active biological society and promotes the study of all aspects of the biological sciences, with particular emphasis on evolution, taxonomy and biodiversity
