Binomial Nomenclature

Introduction

Scientific names are used to define distinct types of creatures in a universal manner so that experts from all over the world may easily recognize the same animal. This is known as binomial nomenclature, and many scientific names are taken from the organism's Latin name.
The scientific name is divided into two parts: the genus name, which comes first, and the particular species name, which comes second.

History

Carolus Linnaeus, a Swedish physician and botanist, pioneered modern binomial nomenclature in the 18th century. The two-part name was proposed to produce a code that more easily recognized individual species without the need of extensive descriptions that might be susceptible to subjectivity.
