The Canadian Mineralogist Special Publication 6, 2003. The history of new mineral discoveries in Canada, covering more than 220 years, is briefly described in the introduction. 372 pages, hardcover, 3 parts, 7 appendixes, index. The pages presenting the mineral species named after people contain not only some facts about those persons, but also their portraits (which seems to be very important!). Other illustra-tions in the book include black and white photographs of minerals (basically SEM images), crystal draw-ings, and scenic pictures of the type localities.

Since 1992, the French Canadian public broadcaster network (Société Radio-Canada) obtained an Office of the Ombudsman which has the mandate to inquire into the complaints of the public concerning the journalistic practices. This role is sometimes criticized by those which see a function of public relations there rather than a critic of the journalistic practices.
The Canadian Endangered Species Conservation Council assesses the status of wild species every 5 years. The list contains the scientific names of the species that are known to occur or to have occurred in Canada. The first assessment was done in 2000 for 1 670 species. New species and species groups have been added in each subsequent report. Species are assigned a regional status using the NatureServe Conservation Rank Calculator. There are 18 regions, including 1 for each province and territory of Canada.

Chilicola kevani, a species of bee A bee discovered in the Brazilian state of Bahia carries the name of a University of Guelph professor: insect ecologist Peter Kevan was honoured by becoming this bee’s namesake this year. Kevan’s work on bee pollination dates all the way back to the 1970s, and has looked at pollinators from the Arctic to tropic jungles. SOURCE: University of Guelph. SOURCE: The Canadian Mineralogist.
Each mineral species is identified by its own appellation, and names have been assigned since antiquity. While there are only some 3000 valid mineral species, nearly 20 000 names occur in the literature. Two branches of the Department of Energy, Mines and Resources, the Geological Survey of Canada and the Canada Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology, rank very high among the leading institutions that identify and publish scientific studies on new minerals; at this time, they have at least half a dozen new species under examination. A number of Canadian localities, regions and other geographical features are identified by names from the mineral kingdom.
