Plant Classification. Plant taxonomy or classification is the science of naming organisms and placing them in a hierarchical structure, each level being given a name (e.g., kingdom, division (phylum), class, order, family, genus, species). Taxonomic units at a given level are termed taxa (singular taxon).   The scientific method is a series of steps followed by scientific investigators to answer specific questions about the natural world. It involves making observations, formulating a hypothesis, and conducting scientific ific inquiry starts with an observation followed by the formulation of a question about what has been observed.

This book brings forth some of the most innovative concepts and elucidates the unexplored aspects of botany by exploring a diverse array of topics. Plant cytology and anatomy, taxonomy, plant diversity, ethnobotany, phytopathology, paleobotany, etc., are some of . For greater usefulness, we add descriptive authorities for termite genera and species and allocate each entry to one of 25 higher taxonomic groupings (or functional taxonomic group, FTG), following recent views of termite phylogeny and the genus lists presented in Chapter 17 of the book (Jones and Eggleton ). Use of the term “clade” is.

In biology, taxonomy (from Ancient Greek τάξις (), meaning 'arrangement', and -νομία (), meaning 'method') is the science of naming, defining (circumscribing) and classifying groups of biological organisms on the basis of shared characteristics.

Organisms are grouped together into taxa (singular: taxon) and these groups are given a taxonomic rank; groups of a given rank can be.

Author(s): Hany El-Shemy. The term environment is used to describe the conditions surrounding a certain organism as a whole. This includes everything from the social structure of life contained within that environment from animals to plants, but also is a method of describing how all the different organisms in one area interact with each other.

Plant Systematics, Second Edition, provides the basis for teaching an introduction to the morphology, evolution, and classification of land plants. It presents a foundation of the approach, methods, research goals, evidence, and terminology of plant systematics, along with the most recent knowledge of evolutionary relationships of plants and practical information vital to the field.

This book presents a concise, up-to-date and fully-integrated discussion of present-day plant taxonomy. It emphasises the dynamic nature of taxonomy which results from it being a fundamental discipline and a synthesis of all biological knowledge.

Since publication of the first edition there have been many developments in the subject. Perhaps the most important of these has been the rise in 5/5(1). Taxonomy - Taxonomy - Ranks: The goal of classifying is to place an organism into an already existing group or to create a new group for it, based on its resemblances to and differences from known forms.

To this end, a hierarchy of categories is recognized. For example, an ordinary flowering plant, on the basis of gross structure, is clearly one of the higher green plants—not a fungus.
