  • Significance of Classification Helps to systematically organise the diversity of organisms. Helps to determine the relation between organisms Helps to trace the possible origins of organisms Helps to identify the great variety of living things
  • What is Taxonomic order? One common way of classifying living things is based in the Linnaeus System of classification which puts organisms into Taxonomic Groups that indicate their natural relationships. View slide
  • Eight Taxonomic Groups Living things are placed into the eight taxonomic groups: Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species based on certain similarities View slide
  • Diversity of Humans Humans are a species of Homo Sapiens and are divided into the following:
  • DOMAIN A domain is the top level grouping of organism. Organisms are classified according to cellular characteristics. Each domain consists of a number of kingdoms like plant and animal kingdom.
  • KINGDOM A kingdom is the second level of grouping. A group of similar kingdom forms a domain. A kingdom contains one or more phylum.
  • Phylum A phylum (division) is a taxonomic group of related or similar organisms. Each phylum consists of a number of classes.
  • Class A class contains one or more orders. A group of similar classes forms a Division.
  • Order An order contains one or more families like carnivore, omnivore etc. A group of similar orders forms a class.
  • Family A family contains one or more genera (plural of genus). A group of similar families forms an order. A family may be divided in subfamilies.
  • Genus The genus is a grouping of similar and closely related species. The scientific name for man is ‘Homo sapiens’ which means ‘wise man. Modern man belongs to genus Homo. The first part reflects the genus. This system is used to name living thing.
  • Species The two part naming system (mentioned in above section) is used to name living thing. The second part of the name sapiens identifies the species.
