I am a fourth-grade teacher in Thetford,
Vermont, and would appreciate help with the
following queries.

Is there a scientific body that promulgates
criteria governing how someone gets credit for
the discovery of a new species?  Is so, what is
the body or what are the criteria?  How is
"discovery" defined in this context?
