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