PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

All of the natural world displays great diversity. Nature allows us to see and understand the way our world was formed. As diverse and as large as our world is, everything has a sense of order and organization. For this reason, it is no surprise that the scientific world seeks to do the same.

Taxonomy is the branch of biology that studies living things for the specific purpose of classifying them in an orderly manner. In Classification of Living Things, we will explore the reasons, methods, and outcomes of classification.
