The Latin language has a great influence on the Sciences. In this powerpoint presentation, examples of how Latin is used in the Sciences is well illustrated. The names of many animals, plants, chemical elements, names of bones, etc. comes directly from Latin. This powerpoint can be used by Latin teachers and Science teachers alike. I am both a Biology Professor at our local community college and I was a Latin instructor (magister) for close to 10 years at a private school.
