The Living World

When we try to define ‘living,’ we generally look for distinguishing characteristics displayed by living organisms and there are some features that are required for an organism to be alive and this includes

  • Growth
  • Reproduction
  • Tactile sensation, Ability to sense the environment
  • Metabolism
  • Self-organize

Diversity in the Living World

Each type of plant, animal, or organism you see represents a species. The number of known and described species ranges between 1.7 and 1.8 million. This term refers to biodiversity or the number and variety of organisms found on Earth. There are three types of Nomenclature -:

  • Binomial nomenclature
  • Polynomial nomenclature
  • Trinomial nomenclature

Binomial Nomenclature

it is the process of giving scientific names to the organisms.  Plant and animal scientific names will be assigned separately by ICBN and ICZN. The scientific name is divided into two parts: the generic name and the specific epithet. Carolus Linnaeus developed this method of providing names with two components, which he called Binomial Nomenclature. 

Rules of Nomenclature

  • Each name has two components – the Generic name and the specific epithet.
  • Plants cannot have generic and specific names that are the same, but it is acceptable for animals.
  • The genus’s first letter will be capitalised, while the specific term will be in small letters.
  • Manually recorded names should be underlined independently. It must be registered in italics in print.

Taxonomic Categories

It is a process that is in charge of identifying, naming, and categorising organisms based on their cell structure, advancement process, and other biological data.
