Introduction to Binomial Nomenclature Binomial Nomenclature is a widely used, formal system of naming a species.
Grevillea victoriae. At the simplest level of scientific classification, each plant has a name made up of two parts, a generic or genus name and a specific name or epithet. Together, these two names are referred to as a binomial. It indicates a grouping of organisms that all share a suite of similar characters.
In all these examinations of Exams, questions from this topic have been asked many times. How names are correctly established in the frame of binominal nomenclature; Which name must be used in case of name conflicts; How scientific literature must cite names; Zoological nomenclature is independent of other systems of nomenclature, for example botanical nomenclature.

Carl Linnaeus, a practical Swedish biologist classified species into two names, one is the genus, and the other is a specific name. Like Homo sapiens, which stands for humans. In this homo is genus and sapiens is a specific name. Let us tell you that the classification of living things whether animals or birds into the scientific name is important for better communication and provides necessary information. Therefore, to recognize easily zoological names are written in a standard form. Rules for writing are as follows:.
This list of Latin and Greek words commonly used in systematic names is intended to help those unfamiliar with classical languages to understand and remember the scientific names of organisms. The binomial nomenclature used for animals and plants is largely derived from Latin and Greek words, as are some of the names used for higher taxa , such as orders and above. At the time when biologist Carl Linnaeus — published the books that are now accepted as the starting point of binomial nomenclature, Latin was used in Western Europe as the common language of science, and scientific names were in Latin or Greek: Linnaeus continued this practice. Although Latin is now largely unused except by classical scholars , or for certain purposes in botany , medicine and the Roman Catholic Church , it can still be found in scientific names. It is helpful to be able to understand the source of scientific names. Although the Latin names do not always correspond to the current English common names, they are often related, and if their meanings are understood, they are easier to recall. The binomial name often reflects limited knowledge or hearsay about a species at the time it was named.
In taxonomy , binomial nomenclature "two-term naming system" , also called binomi n al nomenclature "two-name naming system" or binary nomenclature , is a formal system of naming species of living things by giving each a name composed of two parts, both of which use Latin grammatical forms , although they can be based on words from other languages. Such a name is called a binomial name which may be shortened to just "binomial" , a binomen , binominal name or a scientific name ; more informally it is also called a Latin name. The first part of the name — the generic name — identifies the genus to which the species belongs, while the second part — the specific name or specific epithet — identifies the species within the genus. For example, modern humans belong to the genus Homo and within this genus to the species Homo sapiens. Tyrannosaurus rex is probably the most widely known binomial. The application of binomial nomenclature is now governed by various internationally agreed codes of rules, of which the two most important are the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature ICZN for animals and the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants ICNafp. Although the general principles underlying binomial nomenclature are common to these two codes, there are some differences, both in terminology they use and in their particular rules.

We use common names for animals in everyday speech, but scientists have a different method of naming creatures, called "binomial nomenclature," or two-word naming. This scientific naming system avoids confusion when a scientist is speaking to a colleague who speaks another language—or when different animals are given the same name in various regions. For instance, if scientists who speak English, Russian, Spanish, French, or Japanese all are talking about a Balaenoptera musculus, they all know they are speaking about the same animal: It's the sea mammal the English speaker knows as the blue whale. Latin words are used, with the first term identifying the genus to which the animal belongs—this is the animal's generic name or generic epithet.
В шифровалке не было ни души. Хейл замолк, уставившись в свой компьютер. Она мечтала, чтобы он поскорее ушел. Сьюзан подумала, не позвонить ли ей Стратмору. Коммандер в два счета выставит Хейла - все-таки сегодня суббота.
Я всегда добиваюсь своей цели, - подумал Стратмор. Не обращая внимания на пролом в стене, он подошел к электронной двери. Створки с шипением разъехались в стороны. Он вошел. Сьюзан стояла перед ним, промокшая, взъерошенная, в его пиджаке, накинутом на плечи.
