The major levels of Classification.
The more classification levels that two organisms share, the more characterisitcs they have in common.
The classification system that scientists use today is based on on their contributions of Linnaeus.
The more levels you share with other the more in common you have with them.
so depending on how big or small your contribution is that is how you get classified.
Using Binomial Nomenclature.
using it makes it easier for scentines to communicate about organisms because everyone uses the same scientific name.
the words they use contain Latin words.
many animals have the same one depending on their sizes and DNA.
the naming system of Linnaeus.
Species are a group of similar organisms that mate with each other and can reproduce.
the Genius contains similar organisms
Genus and species
A Genus is a classification of grouping for the organisms different organisms go into the genus.
in the 1750's a Swedish naturalist devised a system of naming the organisms that system is still used today.
scentines use the classification of organisms to determine what to call them.
they split them into groups so they can study them with orangsims that are alike.
with so many organisms it would be hard to study them all at the same time so that is why they split them up
