Transcript of Organism Classification

Organism Classification aka Binomial nomenclature A short Prezi about how Scientists classify organisms. Kingdom There are 4 Kingdoms in side the Domain Eukarya. They are Protists, Fungi, Animals, and Plants. Phylum There are 35 different Phylum in the animal kingdom, 11 in the plant kingdom, and 6 in the fungi kingdom. Class Class is the next step in classification.
Examples of this are Mammalia, reptilia, and amphibia. Order Next in line is Order. An example of this is Primates. Family Family classifies organisms even more. An example of a family is the family Hominidae. Genus Genus classifies organisms even more. The Genus is used in the biological name of an organism, along with the species. Domain There are 3 Domains of Life The 3 domains are Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukarya. Domain Bacteria Member of this domain are uni-cellular, meaning they are made up of only one cell, and are Prokaryotes, meaning they have no nucleus. Bacteria can be helpful, like in yogurt, and vitamins, but it can also be harmful, like bacteria that makes you sick. Domain Archaea Archaea are very similar to bacteria. They have changes in chemicals and structure, but they are also prokaryotes. Domain Eukarya Domain Eukarya is the domain all plants and animals are in. There are 4 kingdoms inside this domain Fact: Humans are Primates Species Species is the very last step in the classification of animals. It is used in the biological name of an organism along with the Genus. Fun Fact: Humans biological name is Homo sapien http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human For more information Go to
