Identification of Small Organisms with Dichotomous Key Experiment



Organisms are classified according to their similar and different characteristics and degree of affinity. Carl Linnaeus divided the kingdoms into classes, classes into order, and sets into genus, and put the concept of "species" on the basis of natural classification. By adding family and phylum to the classification made by Linnaeus, the categories used today have been obtained. The binomial nomenclature method is used for the scientific naming of the species.
In this experiment, we will learn to distinguish some organisms that we encounter in our environment by using their morphological features and to name them according to the binomial nomenclature method.
