S: A Book of Classification
BC: Author's Biography: I was born on September 19th of the year 1997. I was born in Charlotte, North Carolina where my family lived for a year before we came to live in Dalton, Georgia. Then when I was three I attended a preschool called Precious Possessions. I went there for three years until I reached the age of five. Then I started going to New Hope Elementary School. I went there for many years until I was ready for sixth grade. (By ready I mean I had the knowledge and the maturity.) After this fifth grade year, I went to New Hope Middle for my sixth grade year and now my seventh grade year. I will continue going her until eighth grade is finished with next year and then I will go to Northwest HIgh School. And after that...well, who knows. Maybe I'll go to college and get a degree or maybe I'll take a year off and explore the world(cliche`). | More Information about the Author (for stalking purposes): I also have two brothers who are apart of my family. Their names are David and Dylan. My mother and Father are also apart of my family(duh). My dad was born in the Philippines and my mother was born right here in Georgia. My family has three dogs and one cat. Their names are Jill, Piper, Beth, and Honey. We got Jill when I was one and we had just moved to Dalton, Piper when I was in first grade, Honey when I was in third grade, and Beth we got the Summer of last year.
FC: A Book of Classification By: Shelby Fernandez | Jenday Conure Parrot
1: Father of Taxonomy: Carolus Linnaeus | The Classification System and its Importance: We need the classification system because it helps specifically classify things based on their different qualities. Without the classification system we might be so lost as to think fish and birds were the same thing. | Levels of Classification: Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family Genus Species | What is a Dichotomus Key?- It is a system of identifying objects in which a series of paired choices leads increasingly to the identification of the object (which will be the only remaining choice). | Carolus Linnaeus:: He is basically the father of Taxonomy. He created the system for naming, ranking, and classifying organisms that we still use today (although it is has varied a little). His ideas of classification have influenced generations of biologists. | What makes a scientific name?- A scientific name is made up of two things. The first thing being the genus of the animal and the second is the species of the animal. These are both synonyms. The genus and species are the smallest levels of classifications. | Dichotomus Key for bugs
