Here is a good
quiz that tests your knowledge of classifications of science fields. It appeared
in a 1949 edition of The Saturday Evening Post magazine. Even if you
do not particularly know the relationships, you should be able to get most if
not all twelve correct with a combination of surety, recognition of word roots,
and a process of elimination. Good luck.
Where Do the Scientists Belong?
OT long ago the American Association for the Advancement of Science celebrated
its centenary. And thereby hangs a quiz. From a small beginning, the association
has grown into an organization of more than 200 scientific societies grouped
in fifteen sections, according to their interests. The Mammalogists, for instance,
belong naturally in the Zoological Sciences Section, and the Plant Physiologists
in the Botanical Section. Twelve other member societies of the A.A.A.S. .are
listed in the left-hand column below, and in the other column, but in scrambled
order, are the sections to which they belong. Have you advanced your scientific
knowledge to the point where you can assign each society to its proper section?
