Linnaeus’ Taxonomy Taxonomy is any method of classification.
Reasons for Using a Classification System: n Clarification of species n Allows for world-wide research
How Linnaeus’ System Works:
Kingdom: n The largest and most general taxon –Type of cells –Number of cells –Method of getting food
Kingdom: Animalia n Eukaryote: well defined nucleus n Multicellular: more than one cell n Heterotroph: food from an outside source
Kingdoms are Divided into Phyla:
Phylum Chordata: n Backbone n Paired appendages
Phyla are Divided into Classes:
Class: Mammalia n Diaphragm n Hair/fur n mammary glands
Classes are Divided into Orders:
The Primate Order: n Complex Brain n Opposable thumb n Stereovision n Separate radius and ulna n Fingernails
Types of Primates: n Apes n Humans n Prosimians n Monkeys –New World –Old World
Prosimians are: Lemurs & Tarsiers Ringtail Lemur Philippine Tarsier: Tarsius syrichta
Orders are Divided into Families:
Characteristics of Hominidae: n Walk upright n Small face and teeth relative to other primates n Large brain capacity
Families are Divided into Genera:
Characteristics of the Genus Homo: n Largest cranial capacity of any primate. n Cranial capacity increases with time.
Genera are divided into Species Homo erectus neanderthalis vs. sapiens sapiens
Modern Humans Homo sapiens sapiens Leonardo Da Vinci
Ch. 16 Primate Evolution Unit 4.
Classification Current number of species identified on Earth: 1.7 million Write down all notes in BLACK text.
Science 7. Explain why biologists classify organisms. Relate the levels of classification to the relationships between organisms. List characteristics.
Classification. What is Classification? Biologists want to better understand organisms so they organize them. Classification = the grouping of objects.
KINGDOM ANIMALIA roundworm flatworm Snail Segmented worm Sea Sponge
Classification is a way of seeing relationships.
Characteristics of Living Things and Classification
Clades and Classes. Classification Methods By ecology By form By ancestry.
Classification Study Guide Helps communicate with other scientists Learn how organisms are related to other organisms Learn about organisms Make sense.
Chapter 7 - Classification Carolus Linnaeus 18 th century Swedish 2 groups – plants and animals he divided the animal group according to similarities.

12.6 Primate Evolution Taxonomy is the science of naming and classifying organisms Linnaeus - developed the scientific naming system 17.1 The Linnaean.
Notes-Classification Life is classified into 3 Domains: Domain 1 is Archaea ---some live in extreme environments (Yellowstone) Domain 2 is Bacteria ---Some.
1) To explain how scientists classify living things 2) To identify the 6 kingdoms of life.
Classification Notes. Scientists classify organisms based upon similarities.
18-1 History of Taxonomy Taxonomy Branch of biology that names and groups organisms according to their characteristics and evolutionary history.
CLASSIFICATION OF ORGANISMS. Biologists have classified nearly 2 million species Estimates range from 13 million to 40+ million The science of describing,
