Classification of Organisms

Organisms are classified based on similiarities of groups of organisms. General similarities are identified first. This helps us to decide in which kingdom an organism belongs.
Next, scientists get more specific and identify more detailed similarities. This classifies the phylum. The scientist John Ray said that the species:
is the basic unit in Classification members of the same speech and they are similar  that can breed with each other, and their young can breed, While Carl Linnaus
said that the genus is: a group of realated species

Plants and Animals (Classification)
Plants and Animals (Classification) - Background Information
Students in the fourth grade will understand the reasons classification systems are useful and how these systems are constructed. People use classification systems in their everyday lives. These systems are constructed for the same reasons scientists construct the classification systems used in biology. Classification systems help us make sense of the variety of things in our world. This standard emphasizes that classification systems are constructed by humans based upon physical similarities and chemical relationships between organisms. Classification systems are useful in understanding the natural world and will change as biologists learn more about living organisms.
The classification systems used in biology are based on the similarities and differences in organisms. If you think about it, you set up classification systems much the same way. Think about your clothes. You may have many different kinds of clothes such as shorts, pants, and shirts. When you classify an object, you are simply putting that object in a group of other similar objects. In classifying music, there's rock, rap, classical, and folk. When biologists classify organisms, they put them together in logical groups.
Biologists now use five very large groups which include all the members of the natural world. These very large groups are called kingdoms.The three most obvious of the five kingdoms of organisms currently recognized by biologists include:
Plants --These include organisms that absorb sunlight to make their food. Examples of plants include trees, grass, and flowers.
Fungi --These organisms are like plants because they really can't move around, but fungi can't absorb sunlight. Fungi absorb their food and nutrients from dead or decaying matter. Examples of fungi include yeast and mushrooms.
Animals --These organisms cannot make their own food so they must consume other plants, animals, and fungi. Animals are usually mobile (they can move around). Examples of animals include worms, fish, and humans.
(The remaining two kingdoms include single-celled organisms: the protists, such as paramecia, and monera, including bacteria such as streptococcus.)
Our discussion of classification systems has been sprinkled with phrases like "now" or "currently." Those phrases are used to show that the process of classification changes over time. Historically, scientists recognized only two kingdoms of organisms--plants and animals. Some years ago, scientists recognized three kingdoms of organisms, plants, animals, and fungi. We now use the five kingdom system, but years from now maybe students studying science will recognize six or more kingdoms. This change doesn't mean more organisms are being found, but that more differences in organisms are being noticed. It is important to remember that classification systems, while hoping to reflect nature, are made by humans. These systems can change. It doesn't mean the old systems were wrong, but simply that we now have more useful systems with which to understand the world.
Utah Plant and Animal Life
02 - Students will develop and use a classification system for Utah plants or animals
and the scientists classify all the organisms by depending on all old classification into 5 kingdoms ( Animals, Plants, Fungie, Protista & Monera )

Carlos linnaus make a scientific name for any organim  and it is consist  of two names the first name is related to the genus and it is written in capital letter  and the next name is related to the speech and it is written in small letter .
( for example the scientific name for the human is Homo sapiens  the word Homo is related to the genus of the human and the word sapiens belongs to the speech of the humans)

AND IF U WANT TO KNOW ANOTHER SCIENTIFIC NAMES SEND ME A MAIL AND THERE WILL BE INSTANTLY RECIEVED TO YOU REALLY ANY ORGANISM YOU WANT TO KNOW ITS SCIENTIFIC NAME CONTACT ME
ON THIS E-MAIL  :    MMAYMOUN@HOTMAIL.COM  
i will give 2 of them now:  1.Canis familiars (dogs)
