What is the taxonomic classification of corn?
In taxonomical language, corn is a member of the plant kingdom, inthe flowering plant division, and is a monocot by class. In theend, corn is a grass in the Poaceae family and… the genus Zea.
its use to identify unknown organisms
Taxonomy is the practice and science of classification. The word comes from the Greek ÏÎ¬Î¾Î¹Ï , taxis (meaning 'order', 'arrangement') and Î½ÏÎ¼Î¿Ï… , nomos ('law' or 'science').
