taxonomy in Examples From Wordnik
- A biological taxonomy is a classification scheme based on character traits.
- However Linnean taxonomy is a nested hierarchy through-n-through.
- ID guy: Except that taxonomy is based on CHARACTERISTICS.
- A taxonomy is a type of nested hierarchy based on a classification scheme, such as a biological classification.
- Linnaean taxonomy is also a nested hierarchy, but he had very limited knowledge of Reptiles and he set Reptiles as a separate class of Animals; therefore the class is not monophyletic.
- In other words, the nested hierarchy of the observed Linnaean taxonomy is explained as due to the nested hierarchy of the posited descent from common ancestors.
- Darwin proposes that the nested hierarchy of Linnaean taxonomy is due to the nested hierarchy of descent.
- A taxonomy is a nested hierarchy based on shared characterists.
- A taxonomy is a type of nested hierarchy classification based on character traits.
- BTW I said "clade" instead of "phylum" because the problem I see with Linnaean taxonomy is that it organizes the taxa on the basis of morphology BUT MAKES NO PREDICTIONS.
