  • If handwritten, there should be a separate underlined for both genus and species.
  • If written digitally, it should be in italics

10. Why we need to classify organisms:

  • a. Because studying each organism is cumbersome as the number of organisms is vast.
  • b. Because classification makes them easy to relate.
  • c. It is easy to find useful trends and evolution trends when we classify them.
