Biology presentation.

  1. 1. Organizing Life’s Diversity.Level of classification & Binomial nomenclature<br />By: Candace Taylor<br />
  2. 2. Classification!<br />Biologist organize organisms by using classification <br />(The grouping of objects or information based on similarities.)<br />
  3. 3. Taxonomy!<br />The branch of biology that groups and names organism based on studies on their different characteristics.<br />Biologists who study this are called Taxonomists.<br />
  4. 4. Aristotle’s system<br />The Greek philosopher (384-322 B.C.) developed the first widely accepted system of biological classification.<br />Classifying two groups : plants and animals.<br />
  5. 5. Linnaeus&apos;s system!<br />The Swedish botanist (1707-1778) developed a method of grouping organisms that is still used today. Which is based on physical and structural similarities of organisms.<br />
  6. 6. Binomial nomenclature!<br />The first word identifies the genus of the organism.<br />A genus consist of a group of similar species.<br />
  7. 7. The second word describes a characteristic of the organism and is called the specific epithet.<br />Making it a combination between the two.<br />
  8. 8. Latin<br />The language of scientific names.<br />Latin is used because not many people speak Latin anymore.<br />Scientific names are written in idolized print or underlined when written.<br />
  9. 9. Fun Fact:<br />Living things are classified by their external and internal structures of an organism.<br />
  10. 10. Levels of Classification<br />Domain<br />Kingdom<br />Phylum<br />Class<br />Order<br />Family<br />Genus<br />Species<br />
