Biological classification or scientific classification in biology, is a method by which biologists group and categorize species of organisms. Biological classification is a form of scientific taxonomy, but should be distinguished from folk taxonomy, which lacks scientific basis. Modern biological classification has its root in the work of Carolus Linnaeus, who grouped species according to shared physical characteristics. These groupings since have been revised to improve consistency with the Darwinian principle of common descent. Molecular…
The biological system of classification relates to the diversity of species because the system of classification is how we organize the diversity of species. With out it we would have a hard time trying to determine which animals belong with which group. There would be no order, just chaos of trying to determine animal likeness of one another.
Biological classification is also known as biological taxonomy. The eight biological taxonomic ranks are listed below from highest (most general) to lowest (most specific): Domain Kingdom PhylumA / DivisionB Class Order Family Genus Species A Phylum is preferred in zoology B Division is preferred in botany Please see the related links.
This is from wikipedia: The term big cat - which is not a biological classification - is used informally to distinguish the larger cat species from smaller ones. One definition of "big cat" includes the four members of the genus Panthera: the tiger, lion, jaguar, and leopard. Members of this genus are the only cats able to roar. These "roaring cats" are also sometimes distinguished from the other big cats by the term great cats.
