Science, Taxonomy and Biology

This week we learnt about taxonomy the science of classification. We all had to label the different kingdoms of animals, plants, fungi, protista and monera. The classifications separate the different kingdoms to species. All animals are classified under the Kingdom animalia. Not many people realise that the Gorilla are from the same family 'Hominidae' as a human but the human scientific name is a homo sapien and a gorilla is a gorilla beringei. 


Some people don't believe the evolution about humans being apes but I know I definitely do because we have some similar traits such as we have tail bones (but no tails) and opposable thumbs just like apes.
