Terms You should know because my school forced me to learn them.
- Taxonomy- The Study of living things.
- Taxonomist- Someone who studies living things.
- Linnaeus- Credited for starting taxonomy, the "Father of Taxonomy".
- Binomial Nomenclature- Two names, genus species
The 5 Kingdoms
- Monerans- Microscopic incomplete cells, no nucleus (prokaryptic). Split into two newer kingdoms- Archaebactria and Eubacteria. (Ex. virus, bacteria)
- Protist- Most microscopic single cells, have a nucleus, Eukaryotic, plant, like an animal
- Fungi- Most multicellular, no photosynthesis, produce spores, decomposers, (Ex. mushrooms, mildew, mold, etc)
- Plants- Most multicellular, photosynthetic
- Animals- Most multicellular, no photosynthesis, no cell walls, consumers.
The 7 Levels of Classification (from largest to smallest)
The 8 Levels of Organization (From largest to smallest)
There are three reasons why latin is used to name organisms.
- It's a dead language- No one really uses it anymore, that means, it doesn't change.
- It's universal- In a way. Because it doesn't change and because a lot of our words have it as root words, people in different cultures can use latin and other people will understand them.
- It doesn't change- yep.
My biology notes and book
So, did you learn taxonomy yet? Or did you learn anything from this?
P.S If you need an explanation on anything, feel free to ask!
