1)Describe the importance of classification?
2) describe the three main characteristics that are used for hiericial classification?

Dear Student,

Classification is very important in Biology because:
  • Since the number of organisms present is huge, classification makes the study of organisms easier.
  • It helps in establishing relationships and understanding inter-relationships between different organisms.
  • It helps in studying about evolution.
  • It helps in creating a complete database of all life-forms which can provide a large picture about life on earth.

2. The main characteristics used for hierarchical classification are:
  • Complexity of cell structure, whether the cell is prokaryotic or eukaryotic.
  • Body organisation, whether the body is unicellular or multicellular.
  • Mode of nutrition, whether the organism is autotrophic or heterotrophic.

Hope it helps.
