What is taxonomy? Taxonomy is the branch of biology concerned with the grouping and naming of organisms Biologists who study this are called taxonomists
How did it start? People wanted to organize their world so they began grouping, or classifying everything they saw.
Things that swim Things that fly Things that crawl Things that walk on four legs Things that chew their food Things that swallow food whole Things that are toxic
Why classify? To help us study the earthTo help us organize all the species we discover . . .
To give every species a name based on a standard method so scientists from different countries can talk about the same animal without confusion
Who is Carolus Linnaeus?Carolus Linnaeus was a Swedish botanist Developed a 7-level (taxa) classification system based on similarities between organisms
The Seven Level System Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family Genus SpeciesPhillip Called Oprah For Good Spices
How does it work? There are 6 broad kingdomsEvery living thing that we know of fits into one of the six kingdoms Each level gets more specific as fewer organisms fit into any one group
An animal is known by two names…Canis lupus is the scientific name for a gray wolf. Canis is the genus name lupus is the species name This system uses a binomial nomenclature
Genus… A genus consists of a group of closely related speciesOther animals in the Canis group include dogs and coyotes The genus name is always Capitalized
Species... A species consists of animals that can mate and produce fertile offspring Only grey wolves are known as lupus. The species name is always lowercase
Binomial NomenclatureBi means two Nomen means name A binomial nomenclature is a classification system using two names to identify an organism
