Teaching taxonomy, classification, and keys to students is sometimes a slow and fruitless process. It seems that there is a fear and dislike of the whole idea of taxonomy among beginning students. I feel this is largely due to the fact that they are pushed into the system of classification and the use of keys without really understanding them.
