    Abstract

    Taxonomy is the discipline of Biology that identifies, names and classifies organisms according to certain rules. Taxonomists are scientists who study classifying and taxon ( taxa-plural) is a category into which related organisms are placed. Aristotle was the first taxonomist dividing organisms into land, sea and air dwellers and Linnaeus introduced the binomial nomenclature (Genus and species) where the genus is always capitalized followed by species in lower case. Taxonomy is central to exploring and understanding biodiversity. Alpha taxonomy deals with the species category, beta taxonomy with higher categories. The need for good alpha taxonomy is further increased by the biodiversity crisis both for assisting conservation programs and documenting diversity before it is lost.
