Would you usually try to remember it when reading?

When you read "the giant redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum)", would you usually try to remember the spellings of the phrase in the parentheses?


Turn another Watchtower page for an eloquent account of the
giant redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum), a tree for which I
have a special affection because I have one in my garden - a mere
baby, scarcely more than a century old, but still the tallest tree in
the neighbourhood. 'A puny man, standing at a sequoia's base, can
only gaze upward in silent awe at its massive grandeur. Does it
make sense to believe that the shaping of this majestic giant and
of the tiny seed that packages it was not by design?' Yet again, if
you think the only alternative to design is chance then, no, it does
not make sense. But again the authors omit all mention of the real
alternative, natural selection, either because they genuinely don't
understand it or because they don't want to.

@Region Philbis,
Sure, Latin helps:

Sequoia, that you would remember.
Dendron = tree.
Giganteum = giant.
