WORTH QUOTING — “I think some people would like to name it, who knows, Staten I, a lot of things to do with New York City. However, we have to go back to these different museums, find the exact voucher specimen that was used for these other species and, if there is an old name that’s available then we will use that name because that’s the proper way to do it, rather than taking bids on who wants to name the new frog in New York.” Dr. Leslie Rissler, UA associate professor of biological sciences, as quoted on CNN. Rissler is part of a team of scientists that found a new species of frog in New York City.
