  • Jessica Alba, Jessica Simpson, George Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Western meadowlark and eastern meadowlark: two distinct speciesEven though they look alike and have overlapping ranges, the western meadowlark, Sturnella magna (left), and the eastern meadowlark, Sternellaneglecta (right), have distinctly different songs. As a result, they do not interbreed and are classified as separate species.

    1. 1. Name the celebrity:
    2. 2. Name the animal:
    3. 3. Name the animal:
    4. 4. Taxonomy Taxonomy is the science of classifying all known organisms. This includes living and fossilized organisms. Classified organisms are put into groups called taxa (singular: taxon).
    5. 5. Think. Pair. Share. Which of these plants is safe to eat? Hemlock Foxglove Poison Ivy Buttercup Carrot Monkshood
    6. 6. Taxonomy It is important to identify and classify the organisms present in the biosphere in order to effectively use them as resources and protect them from invasive species or other dangers. Emerald ash borers are an invasive species from Asia, and are threatening to kill many of the ash trees in Ontario's boreal forest. By identifying the pest and its prey, we have slowed the infestation.
    7. 7. Taxonomy Taxonomy based on morphology can be difficult since there may be great physical variance within a species, or little visible difference between 2 different species. Left – male peacock Right – female peacock same species
    8. 8. Taxonomy Top and bottom butterflies are the same species, born at different times of the year. Taxonomy based on morphology can be difficult since there may be great physical variance within a species, or little visible difference between 2 different species.
    9. 9. Taxonomy These meadowlarks are of a different species. You can only tell them apart by listening to their songs. Taxonomy based on morphology can be difficult since there may be great physical variance within a species, or little visible difference between 2 different species.
    10. 10. I categorized according to habitat: -water dwellers -land dwellers -air dwellers Taxonomy Aristotle had some of the first recorded attempts at taxonomy. There is also evidence of the ancient Chinese and Egyptians classifying organisms.
    11. 11. Taxonomy Carl Linnaeus is credited as the "father" of modern taxonomy. He established the naming system we use today. Binomial nomenclature is the system that Linnaeus developed whereby all organisms are given two names. Giraffa camelopardalis Felis catusCanis lupus
    12. 12. Binomial Nomenclature The first name is called the organism's genus (plural: genera). The second name is the species. The genus is always capitalized (species is not) and the full name is written in italics. Ailuropoda melanoleuca Ursus maritimusUrsus arctos
    13. 13. Advantages of using the binomial nomenclature system 1. Universal scientific communication 2. Unique for every living thing 3. Show relationship between closely related organisms
    14. 14. Classification System • Kingdom • Phylum • Class • Order • Family • Genus • Species • Memory aid (mnemonic device) –King Phillip called out for good soup

    16. 16. Classification System Brown Bear Animalia chordata mammalia Carnivora Ursidae ursus arctos

    23. 23. Dichotomous Key Di - two
    24. 24. Dichotomy • Splitting of a whole into exactly two mutually exclusive parts • (example: “good” versus “bad”)
    25. 25. Wacky people dichotomy
    26. 26. Step 1 If fish shape is long and skinny then go to step 2 If fish shape is not long and skinny go to step 3 Step 5 If fish has spots, go to step 6 If fish does not have spots, go to step 7 Step 2 If fish has pointed fins, it is a trumpet fish If fish has smooth fins, it is a spotted moray eel Step 6 If fish has chin whiskers, it is a spotted goat fish If fish does not have chin whiskers, it is a band-tail puffer Step 3 If fish has both eyes on top of head, go to step 4 If fish has eye on each side of the head, go to step 5 Step 7 If fish has stripes, go to step 8 If fish does not have stripes, it is a glassy sweeper Step 4 If fish has long whip like tail, it is a spotted eagle ray If fish short blunt tail, it is a peacock flounder Step 8 If fish has a V-shaped tail, it is a squirrel fish If fish has a blunt tail, it is a glass eye snapper
    27. 27. What is a dichotomous key used for? • Used to help place organisms into an appropriate classification group
    28. 28. What are the 2 conditions for a properly written dichotomous key? • 2 choices for each characteristic • Unique ending for each individual item (think of the fish example)
    29. 29. Two ways a dichotomous key can be represented? • Diagrammatically (tree/flow chart) • With words
    30. 30. How does a dichotomous key relate to the 7 taxa and binomial nomenclature • Characteristics that define the choices (dichotomy) are often based on the characteristics that subdivide each taxa (e.g. vertebrate vs. invertebrate) • A true key ends with a scientific name of the organism using the binomial nomenclature system
    31. 31. Similar structure is referred to a homologous structure
    32. 32. Classification System
    33. 33. Classification System Where you live, from broad to specific: - The Universe - The Milky Way Galaxy - The Solar System - Planet Earth - North American Continent - Canada - Ontario - Toronto - North York - Your address
