The most interesting10 species described in 2016 were designated as "International Institute for Species Exploration" and a committee of biologists and naturalists, in a sort of "competition" designed to attract public attention to the problems of biodiversity conservation.

In a report entitled significantly "SOS. State of Observed Species" by specialists from the "International Institute for Species Exploration" in conjunction with those from the "International Plant Names Index", "Zoological Record" Thomson Reuters, "International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology "," AlgaeBase "" MycoBank "and" World Register of Marine Species "outlined in 2008, the latest year for which complete data in the field, have been described globally 18.225 in 2140 new species living species and fossils.

• Swim bombiviridis - a marine worm.
• Aiteng ater - a mollusk. 
• Histiophryne psychedelia - a fish with unusual coloring.

  Hello,

    I'm working on a theory for some time in trying to combine science with religion, looking for an answer to the question 
"What is the purpose of life in Creation?  Is it possible for life to be an unintended consequence of our Universe?

Finally due to space,science and exploration throughout the Universe we got everyone to agree with the fact that we are not the only planet with life.  My blog is full of interesting articles about Creation of the Universe with all his laws,  NASA's Missions,  History,   Science,  Physics, Health, Nature, Ancient origins and Culture.
