What's behind the Biological Classification System in Use Today?
Robertson, William C.
Science and Children, v47 n5 p60-63 Jan 2010
Whether students should memorize classification schemes (taxonomies) is a column in itself, but the author can address the role that this system plays in the study of biology. To that end, it will help to address how the system developed over time. And toward "that" end, you will do a simple activity to start. (Contains 3 figures.)
