Resumen

STUARDO, José R. Trascendencia del primer Saggio sulla storia naturale del Chili de J.I. Molina, su traducción, el Compendio Anónimo y el Bicentenario. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2007, n.495, pp. 83-107. ISSN 0718-0462.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-04622007000100006.

The only translation into Spanish of J.I.Molina´s work Saggio sulla storia naturale del Chili originally published in 1782, was done in 1788 under the erroneous name of Compendio, an unfortunate decision which gave rise over time to a series of misinterpretations obscuring the importance of previous works by other authors which, indeed, made this publication possible. The importance of this Saggio´ is analyzed from the point of view of the first Chilean animal species described using the binomial system of nomenclature proposed by the great naturalist Carolus Linnaeus. The decision to use generic and specific names in Latin allowed the incorporation of an important number of the names proposed by Molina into the international zoological taxonomic literature.

Palabras clave : History of Science; Zoology; Chile; J.I. Molina; C.Linnaeus.
