Binomial nomenclature consists of two parts: the genus name and the species name. For example Homo sapians refers to humans. The genus name has the first letter capitalized and the species name is all lowercase. It should also be italicized.

Binomial nomenclature is the quotation of genus and species. The genus starts with a capital letter and the species with a lower case letter. It is also normal for this name to be in italics so the reader can find what they are looking for easier. If the same genus is used more than once on the page, it can be abbreviated after the first time until another genus is mentioned starting with the same letter. The author of the article which establishes the name is also usually included enclosed in backets, after the name, the first time the species is mentioned. EXAMPLE The species Eucalyptus rugosa (Blakely) was collected on Kangaroo Island by Robert Brown in 1802. E. rugosa has broad thick leaves.

Binomial names are the scientific names of organisms and are binomial in that they consist of two parts, a genus and a species. The genus is ALWAYS written with a capital and the species is ALWAYS written with a lower case letter. Since scientific names are scientific names/Latin names, they are written in italics when typed or underlined when printed with pen and paper.

An example is Daubentonia madagascariensis, the binomial/scientific/Latin name of the aye-aye. Daubentoniais the genus (ALWAYS capitalised) and madagascariensis is the species (NEVER capitalised, but written in lower case).

Other examples are;

Escherichia coli

Balaenoptera musculus

Pongo pygmaeus

Pyxicephalus adspersus

Morpho peleides

Anopheles gambiae

Homo erectus

Pinus pondorosa

Gorilla gorilla

Falco biarmicus

Tyto alba

Orcinus orca

Mus musculus

Alcedo atthis

Crocodylus niloticus

Tyrannosaurus rex

Triceratops horridus

Leucadendron argenteum

Quercus ruber

Sequoiadendron giganteum

It always written as genus and then species. It is usually in Latin and the genus is capitalized and the species is not. Both should be in italics. (that doesn't happen when done in this web site). If the name is used in a paragraph or a section, the use of the name again can be shortened to a capital first letter for the genus and with the species second. For example: Homo sapiensand H. sapiens. Homo meaning man and sapiensmeaning thinking. (The term homo- meaning the same in other uses). Felis catus is the house cat.

The binomial (meaning two names) uses the genus and species for organisms. Humans are listed as Homo sapiens. That means wise man. There are a number of species in our genus such as Homo habilis which means handy man. This is an extinct branch with cousins of ours.
