Who was the first taxonomist to classify the names for plants and animals?
Portrait of Carolus Linnaeus:
Which of the following statements is correct for species?
Species are those which are capable of interbreeding among themselves and can exchange the genes. These are closely related. The offspring produced as a result of interbreeding will be fertile in nature. Species cannot interbreed with the other species.
The taxonomic category below the level of family is?
The hierarchy of biological classification is as follows:
In the zoological name of fish Catla catla, the specific name is identical with the generic name. Thus it is an example of ______.
Select the incorrect statements:
(a) Lower the taxon, more are the characteristics shared by members.
(b) Order is the assemblage of genera, which exhibit a few similar characters.
(c) Cat and dog belong to the same family of Felidae.
(d) Binomial nomenclature was introduced by Carolus Linnaeus.
(a) In the taxonomic hierarchy, lower the rank higher is the degree of similarity between the occupants.
(b) Order is the assemblage of families, which exhibit a few similar characters.
(c) Cat belongs to family Felidae, while dog belongs to Canidae.
(d) The binomial nomenclature was introduced by Carolus Linnaeus in which the genus name and the species epithet are used for the scientific naming of an organism.
Thus, option A is correct.
Characteristics which delimit a family are more general than those which delimit a:
So the correct answer is 'Genus'.
It is possible to imagine the various levels of taxonomic classification as a kind of a "family tree" for an organism. If the kingdom is analogous to the trunk of the tree, which taxonomic category would be analogous to the large limbs coming off that trunk?
If the kingdom is analogous to the trunk of the tree, Phylum taxonomic category would be analogous to the large limbs coming off that trunk
Most acceptable concept of species is:
The biological species concept is the most widely accepted species concept. It defines species in terms of interbreeding. Thus, the correct answer is option B.
Binomial nomenclature means that every organism has:
Binomial nomenclature for the scientific naming of organisms was developed by Carolus Linnaeus. Each name has two parts, i.e The first part comprises of its generic name, while the second part is the specific epithet.
Which one is incorrect?
(a) New individuals replace the dead ones i.e. True
(b) Homeostasis produces a self-regulated steady-state i.e. True
(c) Most homeostatic mechanisms operate through feedback systems i.e. True
(d) Cell obtains instructions for divisions from a hereditary protein i.e. False
Identify the correct sequence of taxonomic hierarchical arrangement in ascending order of the following.
The given sequence represents the classification of the Mango (Mangifera indica) plant.
What is the scientific name of Asian tiger mosquito?
The Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) is a small black and white mosquito, about 1/4-inch long. It has black and white striped legs, and a small black and white striped body. It is native to tropical and sub-tropical South-east Asia. Hence option B is correct.
The group "Pteropsida" proposed by Oswald Tipo include:
Pearl millet is:
Pearl millet is Pennisetum typhoid’s.
Primate and Carnivora are placed together in the same?
Primates and carnivores are the two ordered of the same class called Mammalia. Primata and carnivores are placed together as belonging to the same class.
The smallest unit of classification is known as:
Species is the smallest unit of classification.
What is the difference between the taxonomic categories, division and phylum?
The permanent record of plant specimen is called as:
Illustration of a herbarium sheet:
Which of the following is not true for a species?
Gene flow occurs between the populations of a species.
Example: Gene flow can occur within plant species when pollen is carried by bees or blown by the wind from one population of flowering plants to another of the same species.
Which one of the following criteria is/are essential and form the basis of classical taxonomic studies?
One of the essential criteria of taxonomic studies is the morphological structure of plant (i.e. external appearance of plant). Anatomy of a plant (i.e. internal structure) also played a huge role for the basis of taxonomic studies.
