From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search For the science of classifying living things, see biological classification and alpha taxonomy Look up taxonomy in Wiktionary , the free dictionary. Taxonomy is the practice and science of classification. The word finds its roots in the Greek taxis (meaning 'order' or 'arrangement') and nomos (meaning 'law' or 'science'). Taxonomy uses taxonomic units, known as taxa (singular taxon In addition, the word is also used as a count noun a taxonomy , or taxonomic scheme, is a particular classification ("the taxonomy of ..."), arranged in a hierarchical structure. Typically this is organized by supertype-subtype relationships, also called generalization-specialization relationships, or less formally, parent-child relationships. In such an inheritance relationship, the subtype by definition has the same properties, behaviors, and constraints as the supertype plus one or more additional properties, behaviors, or constraints. For example: car is a subtype of vehicle , so any car is also a vehicle, but not every vehicle is a car. Therefore a type needs to satisfy more constraints to be a car than to be a vehicle. Another example: any shirt is also a piece of clothing, but not every piece of

For a nice discussion of this taxonomy and a comparison between the original and revised versions, please see Bloom's Revised Taxonomy of Educational Objectives ( Anderson, et. al., 2001 ) is designed to represent qualitatively different levels of cognition. In the hands of teachers it is used to help them plan for the quality of thinking that they would like specific learning experiences to engender. While it is not designed to be hierarchical, it does seem to be the case that the lower two levels of "remember" and "understand" are foundational to any of the higher level objectives. These higher level objectives lead to deeper cognitive processing and therefore tend to be the most educationally powerful. I believe that the underlying message is that all learning experiences are not created equal. When we design learning environments and experiences we must be careful to plan for the type of cognitive processing that we hope to foster. Incorporating higher level objectives not only tends to encourage better retention and comprehension, it also Taxonomy of Technology-Fostered Cognitive Objectives Cognitive Process Individual Collaborative 1.

      To manage the structure of the articles, MediaWiki uses categories, which excels at the web structure. It can also be used to represent hierarchies, using internal links and subcategories, but it has some weakness:
      • The hierarchy must be constructed in bottom up fashion. Selecting all articles belonging to a top category is slow. Adding a new table for storing the taxonomy in nested hierarchy structure. Providing a taxonomy-tree tag to define the taxonomy tree in a page using a top down approach.

    Naming Organisms:
    -usually Latin or Greek
    -developed by Carolus Linnaeus The scientific name is always italicized or underlined. Genus is capitalized. Species is not. Scientific names can be abbreviated by using the capital letter of the genus and a period: Example. P. leo (lion) Members of the same genus are closely related.
    Only members of the same species can interbreed (under natural conditions)
    Some hybrids do occur under unnatural conditions: Ligers are crosses between tigers and lions.

  • the particular classification (taxonomy) of Carolus Linnaeus , as set forth in his Systema Naturæ (1735) and subsequent works. In the taxonomy of Linnaeus there are three kingdoms, divided into classes , and they, in turn, into orders genera (singular: genus ), and species (singular: species ), with an additional rank lower than species. a term for rank-based classification of organisms, in general. That is, taxonomy in the traditional sense of the word: rank-based scientific classification . This term is especially used as opposed to cladistic systematics, which groups organisms into clades . It is attributed to Linnaeus, although he neither invented the concept of ranked classification (it goes back to Aristotle ) nor gave it its present form. In fact, it does not have an exact present form, as "Linnaean taxonomy" as such does not really exist: it is a collective (abstracting) term for what actually are several separate fields, which use similar approaches.

    Taxonomy is a hierarchical system for classifying and identifying organisms. This system was developed by Swedish scientist Carolus Linnaeus in the 18th century.
    Binomial Nomenclature
    Linnaeus's taxonomy system has two main features that contribute to its ease of use in naming and grouping organisms. The first is the use of binomial nomenclature. This means that an organism's scientific name is comprised of a combination of two terms. These terms are the genus name and the species or epithet. Both of these terms are italicized and the genus name is also capitalized.
    For example, the scientific name for humans is Homo sapiens . The genus name is Homo and the species is sapiens . These terms are unique and no other species can have this same name.
    Classification Categories
    The second feature of Linnaeus's taxonomy system that simplifies organism classification is the ordering of species into broad categories. There are seven major categories:

    20. AGORA - Taxonomy
    An introduction to the taxonomy of essential oil producing plant species for aromatherapy and aromatherapists presented by AGORA, the Aromatherapy Global Online Research Archive.
    Taxonomy Taxonomy is the science of classification. Each individual plant is a species; similar species are linked into genera, and similar genera are linked into families. In scientific notation, the initial letter of the genus name is capitalized, but that of the species name is not. Thus, Eucalyptus globulus, Eucalyptus citriodora and Eucalyptus smithii are all different species within the Eucalyptus genus. In a few cases the Latin name will appear differently, indicating that the plant is a hybrid. For instance, peppermint oil, Mentha x piperita , is known to be a hybrid between Mentha spicata, spearmint, and Mentha aquatica , water mint. You may think that learning Latin names of essential oils is a waste of time, difficult and unnecessary. Not so. Here are some reasons why taxonomy is important in aromatherapy.
    • Sometimes English names are confusing. For instance, sweet marjoram and Spanish marjoram are not closely related and cannot be substituted for each other, even though the names are similar. Sweet marjoram is Origanum majorana while Spanish marjoram is Thymus mastichina.
