Description

taxonomic group of closely related species with a common ancestor. genus
named group of organisms, such as a phylum, genus, or species. taxon
taxonomic group of similar, related genera that is larger than a genus and smaller than an order. family
Linnaeus's system of naming organisms, which gives a scientific two-word Latin name to each species--the first part is the genus name and the second is the specific epithet. binomial nomenclature
prokaryotes whose cell walls do not contain peptidoglycan. archaebacteria
inherited morphological or biochemical feature that varies among species and can be used to determine patterns of descent. character
taxonomic method that models evolutionary relationships based on shared derived characters and phylogenetic trees. cladistics
diagram with branches that represents the hypothesized phylogeny or evolution of a species or group; uses bioinformatics, morphological studies, and information from DNA studies. cladogram
taxonomic group that contains one or more related orders. class
grouping of organisms or objects based on a set of criteria that helps organize, communicate, and retain information. classification
taxonomic term used instead of phylum to group related classes of plants and bacteria. division
taxonomic group of one or more kingdoms. domain
prokaryotes with peptidoglycan-containing cell walls. eubacteria
unicellular or multicellular eukaryote that is stationary, absorbs nutrients from organic materials in the environment, and has cell walls that contain chitin. fungus
taxonomic group of related phyla or divisions. kingdom
model that uses comparisons of DNA sequences to estimate phylogeny and rate of evolutionary change. molecular clock
evolutionary history of a species. phylogeny
taxonomic group of related classes. phylum
