What does the biological word phylum mean?
a phylum was the next level of classification below kingdom.
A phylum is a subdivision after kingdom in biological terms. It divides animals into different groups based on their body plans. There are several different phylums in the different kingdoms. Under the Kingdom Animalia there are Phylum Chordata, Phylum Arthropoda, Phylum Mollusca, Phylum Porifera, Phylum Annelida, Phylum Echinodermata, Phylum Nematoda, and the list goes on.
One of the major divisions of living things; the second-largest standard unit of biological classification. Arthropods and molluscs are examples of phyla. Phyla in the plant kingdom are frequently called divisions. I think you mean "phylum". A phylum is a rank in classification between Kingdom and class. E.g: Humans Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Subphylum: Vertebrata Class Mammalia
The word 'anthropod' is not a phylum and refers specifically to humans and humanoids. Aside from the term's more general non-biological application it describes only one species, homo sapiens. This is not to be confused with arthropods (phylum arthropoda) which include arachnids (spiders and scorpions, horseshoe crabs and sea spiders), myriapods (like centipedes and millipedes), crustaceans (shrimp, lobsters, crabs, etc), hexapods (insects), and others.
Kingdom is the biological classification group that has the most organisms..then phylum, class, order, family, genus, species. A way to remember them: King Philip Came Over For Grape Soda. kingdom class Kingdom is the biological classification group that has the most organisms, then phylum, class, order, family, genus, species.
