Taxonomy and phylogeny Taxonomy the study of classification - how organisms are placed in groups or taxa (singular = taxon) Phylogeny the study of the evolutionary history of living organisms Classification now uses phylogeny when arranging organisms into groups so classification reflects evolutionary relationships It shows that closely related species share a common ancestor (which may now be extinct) A range of characteristics are used e.g. anatomy, behaviour, embryological development, molecular structure (proteins and DNA)
The evolutionary relationships of the wolf, dog and fox
Classification of the plant kingdom based on phylogeny
Anatomy and embryology This is evidence for a common ancestor for these mammals
Classification of reptiles and birds based on phylogeny
Classification of leopard, skunk, otter, dog and wolf based on phylogeny
Are chimps in the same genus as humans? See page 212 213 textbook
Using DNA bases as evidence which 2 animals are most closely related? And which are most distantly related? Animals% difference in bases C, G, A and T in coding DNA human / chimpanzee0.87 human / gorilla1.04 human / orang-utan2.18 chimpanzee / gorilla0.99 chimpanzee / orang-utan2.14 gorilla / orang-utan2.25
Classification of humans and apes based on phylogeny
Classification the binomial system Carolus Linnaeus, 18C
What does Binomial mean? Each name has 2 parts. The first is a group of similar species, the genus. The second is the single species. The genus always has a capital letter and the species never has. The name is typed in italics, or underlined when hand written.
Some examples common names? Homo sapiens Vibrio cholerae Canis lupus Mycobacterium tuberculosis
So what is a species? Members of the same species show similar morphological, biochemical (e.g. DNA) and physiological characteristics and can breed together, producing fertile offspring.
List the 7 levels of the hierarchy of taxa (classification groups) There are 5 kingdoms, the largest groups. Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. King Philip could only find gruesome socks!
The subdivisions of a kingdom http://advancedsciences.cambridge.org/ocr/biology_1/animation/3392 how can you learn the names? http://advancedsciences.cambridge.org/ocr/biology_1/animation/3392
Here are 2 examples each from a different kingdom. AnimaliaPlantae ChordataAngiospermophyta MammaliaDicotyledonae PrimataRosales HominidaePapilionaceae HomoLathyrus sapiensordoratus (human)(sweet pea)
Classifying the grizzly bear Each organism is given 2 names a binomial = genus + species e.g. Ursus horribilis
Checking your understanding 1)Complete the questions in your Classification workbooklet. 2) answer SAQ 1 page 209 3) what is the binomial system of naming organisms? and why is important in Biology? http://advancedsciences.cambridge.org/ocr/biology_1/animation/3392
5 kingdoms (1988) http://advancedsciences.cambridge.org/ocr/biology_1/animation/5278 http://advancedsciences.cambridge.org/ocr/biology_1/animation/5278 Prokaryote(Monera), Protoctista, Fungi, Plantae, Animalia
