2 Section 1 BiodiversityChapter 17ObjectivesRelate biodiversity to biological classification.Explain why naturalists replaced Aristotle’s classification system.Identify the main criterion that Linnaeus used to classify organisms.List the common levels of modern classification from general to specific.
3 Classifying Organisms Section 1 BiodiversityChapter 17Classifying OrganismsNaturalists have invented several systems for categorizing biodiversity, which is the variety of organisms considered at all levels from populations to ecosystems.
4 Section 1 BiodiversityChapter 17TaxonomyNaturalists replaced Aristotle’s classification system because it did not adequately cover all organisms and because his use of common names was problematic.Taxonomy is the science of describing, naming, and classifying organisms.
5 Chapter 17 Taxonomy, continued The Linnaean System Section 1 BiodiversityChapter 17Taxonomy, continuedThe Linnaean SystemCarolus Linnaeus devised a seven-level hierarchical system for classifying organisms according to their form and structure.From the most general to the most specific,the levels are kingdom, phylum, class, order, family,genus, and species.
6 Classification Hierarchy of Organisms Section 1 BiodiversityChapter 17Classification Hierarchy of Organisms
7 Levels of Classification Section 1 BiodiversityChapter 17Levels of ClassificationBinomial NomenclatureAn important part of Linnaeus’s system was assigning each species a two-part scientific name—a genus name, such as Homo, and a species identifier, such as sapiens.This system of a two-part name is known as binomial nomenclature.
8 Chapter 17 Objectives Section 2 Systematics Identify the kinds of evidence that modern biologists use in classifying organisms.Explain what information a phylogenetic diagram displays.State the criteria used in cladistic analysis.Describe how a cladogram is made.Discuss how proteins and chromosomes are used to classify organisms.Explain cladistic taxonomy, and identify one conclusion that is in conflict with classical taxonomy.
9 Chapter 17 Phylogenetics Section 2 SystematicsChapter 17PhylogeneticsA modern approach to taxonomy is systematics, which analyzes the diversity of organisms in the context of their natural relationships.When classifying organisms, scientists consider fossils, homologous features, embryos, chromosomes, and the sequences of proteins and DNA.
10 Phylogenetics, continued Section 2 SystematicsChapter 17Phylogenetics, continuedA phylogenetic diagram displays how closely related a subset of taxa are thought to be.
11 Phylogenetics, continued Section 2 SystematicsChapter 17Phylogenetics, continuedEvidence of Shared AncestryHomologous features as well as similarities in patterns of embryological development provide information about common ancestry.
12 Section 2 SystematicsChapter 17CladisticsCladistics uses shared, derived characters as the only criterion for grouping taxa.

14 Chapter 17 Cladistics, continued Molecular Cladistics Section 2 SystematicsChapter 17Cladistics, continuedMolecular CladisticsMolecular similarities (such as similar amino acid or nucleotide sequences), as well as chromosome comparisons, can help determine common ancestry.
