From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search For the science of classifying living things, see alpha taxonomy Look up taxonomy in Wiktionary , the free dictionary. Taxonomy is the practice and science of classification . The word comes from the Greek taxis , 'order' + nomos , 'law' or 'science'. Taxonomies, or taxonomic schemes, are composed of taxonomic units known as taxa (singular taxon ), or kinds of things that are arranged frequently in a hierarchical structure, typically related by subtype-supertype relationships, also called parent-child relationships. In such a subtype-supertype relationship the subtype kind of thing has by definition the same constraints as the supertype kind of thing plus one or more additional constraints. For example, car is a subtype of vehicle. So any car is also a vehicle, but not every vehicle is a car. So, a thing needs to satisfy more constraints to be a car than to be a vehicle.

    Taxonomy: A way to organize your content
    Drupal 5.x The Taxonomy module lets you classify content into categories and subcategories, thus organizing the content on your site. For example, you could classify music by genre: classical, jazz, rock. And you might further classify "classical" into concertos, sonatas, symphonies, and so on. When your users create new content, you can let them classify it (or even require them to do so) right when they create it. When users view a post to which a category has been assigned, along with the post your theme will generally show the name of the category (or categories) to which the post belongs. Each category's name appears as a link. And clicking on that link will bring users to a page showing the other posts of the same category. You can enable the categories module on the modules page ( The categories module is also sometimes called the taxonomy module. Taxonomy means "division into ordered groups or categories." Taxonomy also refers to the science or principles of classification. In the language of taxonomy, groups of categories are called "vocabularies," and the categories themselves are called "terms."

    Taxonomy: Classifying Life
    At least 1.7 million species of living organisms have been discovered, and the list grows longer every year (especially of insects in the tropical rain forest). How are they to be classified? Ideally, classification should be based on homology ; that is, shared characteristics that have been inherited from a common ancestor . The more recently two species have shared a common ancestor,
    • the more homologies they share, and
    • the more similar these homologies are.
    Until recent decades, the study of homologies was limited to However, since the birth of molecular biology, homologies can now also be studied at the level of
    • proteins and
    • DNA

Although used for such different functions as throwing, swimming, and flying, the same basic structural plan is evident in them all.

Taxonomy, science of classifying organisms. Probably the first scientific study of plants was the attempt to classify them. At first, because of the limited knowledge of plant structures, artificial classifications, beginning with the most ancient one into herbs, shrubs, and trees, were necessary. These simple categories merely cataloged, in a tentative way, the rapidly accumulating material, in preparation for a classification based on natural relationships. Modern taxonomic classification, based on the natural concepts and system of the Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus , has progressed steadily since the 18th century, modified by advances in knowledge of morphology, evolution, and genetics.

As a guideline to create these resource pages, we used the "Classification Of Life" in Appendix Three from the 4th edition of Biology by Neil A. Campbell. The textbook states "This appendix presents the taxonomic classification used for the major groups of organisms discussed in this text; not all phyla are included. Plant and fungal divisions are the taxonomic equivalents of phyla. The classification reviewed here is based on the five-kingdom system..." Use the dictionary and encyclopedia links to help define and, in some cases, provide the scientific name for your chosen organism(s). For much more detailed information, select an appropriate Kingdom from this chart.

- Taxonomy (from Greek taxis meaning arrangement or division and nomos meaning law) is the science of classification according to a pre-determined system, with the resulting catalog used to provide a conceptual framework for discussion, analysis, or information retrieval. In theory, the development of a good taxonomy takes into account the importance of separating elements of a group (taxon) into subgroups (taxa) that are mutually exclusive, unambiguous, and taken together, include all possibilities. In practice, a good taxonomy should be simple, easy to remember, and easy to use. One of the best known taxonomies is the one devised by the Swedish scientist, Carl Linnaeus, whose classification for biology is still widely used (with modifications). In Web portal design, taxonomies are often created to describe categories and subcategories of topics found on the Web site. The categorization of words on is similar to any Web portal taxonomy.

Bloom's Taxonomy
Benjamin Bloom created this taxonomy for categorizing level of abstraction of questions that commonly occur in educational settings. The taxonomy provides a useful structure in which to categorize test questions, since professors will characteristically ask questions within particular levels, and if you can determine the levels of questions that will appear on your exams, you will be able to study using appropriate strategies.

Revised 7/28/06 View the Taxonomy List In any assessment of doctoral programs, a key question is: Which programs should be included? The task of constructing taxonomy of programs is to provide a framework for the analysis of research-doctorate programs as they exist today, with an eye to the future. A secondary question is: Which programs should be grouped together across universities for purposes of comparison and what names should be given to these aggregations?
View the Taxonomy List with Sub-Fields We recognize that scholarship and research in interdisciplinary fields have grown significantly since the last study. Some of this work is multidisciplinary; some is cross disciplinary or interdisciplinary. We could not devise a single standard for all possible combinations. Where possible, we have attempted to include acknowledged interdisciplinary fields such as Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, and American Studies. In other instances, we listed areas as emerging fields. Our goal remains to identify and evaluate inter-, multi-, and cross-disciplinary fields. Once they become established scholarly areas and meet the threshold for inclusion in the study established by this and future committees, they will be added to the list. The Committee also reviewed the threshold level for inclusion of an individual program and, given the growth in the average size of programs, generally felt that a modification was warranted. A minimal amount of activity is required to evaluate a program.

WebQuest Taskonomy:
A Taxonomy of Tasks
The task is the single most important part of a WebQuest. It provides a goal and focus for student energies and it makes concrete the curricular intentions of the designer. A well designed task is doable and engaging, and elicits thinking in learners that goes beyond rote comprehension. There must be fifty ways to task your learner. Since 1995, teachers have been adapting the WebQuest model to their own needs and settings, and from their collective wisdom and experience some common task formats have emerged. This taxonomy describes those formats and suggests ways to optimize their use. It provides a language for discussing WebQuest tasks that should enhance our ability to design them well. It's likely that the task in a given WebQuest will combine elements of two or more of these task categories. The categories below are in no particular order other than the placement of Retelling tasks first because of their simplicity and borderline status as the foundation of a good WebQuest. With eleven other task types to choose from, it's time to go beyond mere retelling!

Research reports like these are bread-and-butter activities that don't break much new ground in educational practice, but they can provide an easy introduction to the use of the Web as an information source.

Learning Domains or Bloom's Taxonomy
The Three Types of Learning
There is more than one type of learning . A committee of colleges, led by Benjamin Bloom, identified three domains of educational activities:
  • Cognitive : mental skills ( Knowledge
  • Affective : growth in feelings or emotional areas ( Attitude
  • Psychomotor : manual or physical skills ( Skills
Since the work was produced by higher education, the words tend to be a little bigger than we normally use. Domains can be thought of as categories. Trainers often refer to these three domains as KSA (Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude). This taxonomy of learning behaviors can be thought of as "the goals of the training process." That is, after the training session, the learner should have acquired new skills, knowledge, and/or attitudes. The committee also produced an elaborate compilation for the cognitive and affective domains, but none for the psychomotor domain. Their explanation for this oversight was that they have little experience in teaching manual skills within the college level (I guess they never thought to check with their sports or drama department). This compilation divides the three domains into subdivisions, starting from the simplest behavior to the most complex. The divisions outlined are not absolutes and there are other systems or hierarchies that have been devised in the educational and training world. However, Bloom's taxonomy is easily understood and is probably the most widely applied one in use today.

      What is taxonomy?
      Nephilengys malabarensis: Tropical orb-weaving spider from Sri Lanka. Taxonomy is the science of identifying and naming species and organising them into systems of classification. Who is involved? The scientists that do taxonomy are called taxonomists. Their work is crucial for all our efforts to conserve biodiversity. What's in a name? The names taxonomists give to species don't just tell us what they are called, but also tell us about how they are related to one another. This can help us to identify patterns in nature, and decide how best to protect the individual species that are part of the world's biodiversity. How many species are there? Scientists believe there may be as many as 30 million species of plants, animals and micro-organisms living on the Earth today. Every one of them plays a part in the global ecosystem. Taxonomists have only identified and named approximately 1.7 million of them so far. How does it help conservation?

We use this lab in Patterns and Processes , and Tropical Marine Ecology . This exercise illustrates the creativity involved in taxonomy and the roles form and function, ancestral traits and derived characters play in generating classification schemes. It can also serve as an introduction to topics in evolution and paleontology. We have noticed that in the field, after completing this exercise, students begin to recognize distinctions and similarities in fauna which they may have not noticed before.
