Earthworms tunnel through the ground by swallowing dirt and passing it through their bodies. In that dirt, the worm gets nutrients from decomposing vegetation, like rotting leaves and other organic material. The worms digestion of this material as it passes through him/her helps break down the leave…s and organic material further, helping soil to become fertile, mixed and "nutritious" for plants to grow, the tunnels also irrigate the soil and allow air to be mixed in (oxygen also helps old leaves and dead plants to decompose). Because of worms, when rain falls, fresh water can sink into the earth more easily to reach plant roots and the water table more easily, instead of just rolling down hill and eroding (taking nutrients and soil away) the land. Worms are really cool. Then as the earthworm has digested the dirt and taken the nutrients out of the dirt it poops out the dirt making new dirt that is fertilized and is ready to be dirt. (MORE)
The scientific name of a chemical compound is the name given by the IUPAC. Common name is the name that was used before scientific names were used. For example, the compound CH 3 CHO is an aldehyde. Its scientific name is Methanal. It was formerly called formaldehyde.
A Scientific name, or more correctly botanical name (for plants) or zoological name (for animals) is a unique Latin based descriptive name that is allocated to each and every living thing. The name is based on a hierarchical classification system which was developed by Carl Linnaeus in the earl…y 1700's - called binomial nomenclature (two names). By using this system scientists, botanist, zoologists etc. avoid confusing specific species of animals (plants, bacteria etc.) which occurs when referring to them by common names. For example if a zoologist was studying dogs he could accurately describe the specific type of dog out of the hundreds of different breeds that exist; that way his research could be checked or repeated with accuracy at a later stage.

The usual technical name for "farting" is "flatulence".

The scientific name of an animal, plant, bacteria, or so on is made up of the genus of the organism and the species name. (For example, Tyrannosaurus rex . This animal belongs in the genus Tyrannosaurus , suggesting that it is a large carnivore that lived long ago that used wits, vision, and bone-… crushing force to disarm prey. The species name rex leads a scientist to believe that it is considerably large and common during the very end of the cretaceous epoch.) Occasionally, a third name, or a subspecies name, has to be put into use as in the case of the African Lion, or Felis panthera leo. The term felis suggests that it is a cat. Panthera is used to describe a big cat who is fast, long, and streamlined. Leo tops it all of and classifies the African Lion. (MORE)
A scientific name is a true name for a animal or plant that is more sophisticated
The essence of this system of naming is this: each species name is formed out of Latin , and has two parts, the genus name and the species. The two-part name of a species is popularly known as the Latin name . However, biologists and philologists prefer to use the term scientific name rather than… "Latin name", because the words used to create these names are not always from the Latin language, even if the words have been Latinized in order to make them suitable. Instead names are often derived from ancient Greek word roots, or words from numerous other languages. Frequently species names are based on the surname of a person, such as a well-regarded scientist, or are a Latinized version of a relevant place name. (MORE)
The genus is the first part of a scientific name. Note that the genus is always capitalised. An example: Lemur catta is the scientific name of the Ringtailed lemur and Lemur is the genus. Another example: Sphyrna zygaena is the scientific name of one species of Hammerhead shark and Sphyrna… is the genus. (MORE)

Binomial nomenclature is a system of giving distinct and proper names to organisms with each name consisting of two words, generic and specific . Also known as scientific names. Example scientific name of human is Homo sapiens , scientific name of frog is Rana tigrina etc .
When you are referring to a species, you use what it called binomial nomenclature. This means that you use the name of the genus followed by the "specific epithet". It's the name of the genus that is always capitalized, so Homo sapiens (modern humans) or Metasequoia glyptostroboides (dawn redwo…od). It is also important to either use italics or to underline the full species name. There are tons of rules about how to properly name new species and subspecies etc., and things change all the time, but capitalization and italics are definitely what you need to know here. (MORE)
