Current Taxonomy in Classroom Instruction
Baumgartner, Laura K.; Pace, Norman R.
Science Teacher, v74 n7 p46-51 Oct 2007
The ability to sequence genes has vastly altered our understanding of higher-level relationships among organisms such as those found at the kingdom level. It is important for biology teachers to incorporate these new views and not retain outdated concepts still present in some textbooks. This article provides an overview of our new understanding of higher-level taxonomy, and suggestions for the utilization of current taxonomy in classroom instruction. (Contains 3 figures and 6 resources.)
