The Classification of Organisms

From the: The Wonders of Vertebrate Life Series

For thousands of years scientists have named and categorized the vast array of life on Earth. This video program highlights the major advances concerning the classification of life, more specifically focusing on current trends in systematics and taxonomy. Concepts and terminology include: scientific name, binomial nomenclature, taxa, domains, Archea, Bacteria, Eukarya, evolutionary, relationships, systematic biology, phylogeny, and taxonomy.

"Vocabulary words such as taxa, domains, evolutionary, phylogeny, and others are introduced and defined with onscreen graphics and computer animations, while excellent nature footage provides examples for the concepts discussed."
