Transcript of Animal Classification
Species Biological Stuff Biological classification is a method of scientific
taxonomy used to group and categorize organisms into groups such as genus or species. These groups are known as taxa. Molecular phylogenics, which uses DNA sequences as data, has also driven many recent revisions and is likely to continue doing so. Biological classification belongs to the science of biological systematics. Carolus Linnaeus ran through twelve editions during his lifetime. In his work, nature was divided into three kingdoms: mineral, vegetable, and animal. Scientific names such as Ostiechthyes were difficult to understand, and Carolus Linnaeus classified it with less complicated names. Biological classification is a critical step in taxonomy process. One of the most important eighteenth century naturalists was a swedish botanist and medical doctor named Karl von Linne`. He wrote one-hundred eighty books mainly describing plant species in extreme detail. Since his published writings were mostly in Latin, he is known o the scientific world today as Carolus Linnaeus , which is the latinized form he chose for his name. Carolus lived from 1707, to 1778. The Linnaeus system of classification was widely accepted by the early 19 century and is still the basic frame work for all taxonomy in biological sciences today. Kingdom is broadest of taxa. All animals are in kingdom animalia. All plans are in kingdom plantae. Phyla are slightly less broad. There are usually a few phyla in each kingdom. Species is the most restricted. Today, nomenclature is regulated by nomenclature codes, which allows names divided into taxonomic ranks. Now...to the Giant Pandas Giant Pandas are endangered species. Living in the mountains of central China, it has been known to the Chinese for more than two thousand years. The French missionary Pere Armand David was the first westerner who introduced it to the west. Kingdom: Animalia
Family: Prcyonidae or Vrsidae
Species: Ailuropoda melanoleura More About A Quiet Animal Ruth Harkness was the first one who successfully exported a Giant Panda out of China alive.
More than three hundred pandas live in zoos and breeding centers around the world: most of their pandas live in China. Giant pandas live in a few mountain ranges in central China, in Sichuan,
Shaanxi, and Gansu provinces. They once lived in lowland areas, but farming, forest cleaning, and other development now restrict Giant pandas to the mountains. Giant pandas live in broad leaf and coniferous forests with a dense understory of bamboo, at elevations between five thousand and ten thousand feet. torrential rains or dense mist throughout the year characterizes these forests, often shrouded in heavy clouds. Scientists do not know why this type of bear is black and white, but some speculate that it helps provide effective camouflage when in snow, or behind rocks.
