Scientific names of plants and creatures




Creation and purpose of Scientific name or Binomial nomenclature

Carolus Linnaeus, a botanist from Sweden first created this Latin naming system of plants and creatures. This Latin naming system is both applicable for plants or any other living creatures of our biological environment. This naming system is a technique to indicate the relationship within a plant or creatures of land, water, air or anywhere.


About Scientific naming System

Scientific names also known as Binomial nomenclature is a Latin naming system that is divided into two parts; the first part described the genus that the species belongs to; and the second part is the name of the species of a particular genus. The first part of the naming system should be written in Capital letter and the second part written using non-capitalized letters.
