Fauna ClassifiedHabitats classified
Whilst scientists are still discussing which types are most related to which others, the limits of the types are much less discussed. Launched in June 2001 by Specialies 2000 and Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS), the Life Catalog is to become a complete catalog of all known types of life on Earth with 1.4 million records.
They are classified into groups such as animal and virus. Within the bio-diversity information technology fellowship, there is a move to make clear numerical identifier available for all biologic name. It would allow writers to clearly quote a name in electronical mediums and decrease the importance of mistakes in the writing of a name or the acronym of an authoritative name.
More and more biologists are heading towards a cladist approach in which types are organised according to their ancestry. Currently, the types in the physiological system are still often organised in a hierarchical way. If possible, it will be beneficial to start with a cladist structure and to fill in the detail during the course of the biologic analyses.
But Blake (in Knowledge Organization 38:6) is discussing several issues in the zoological class. Firstly, he proposes that the needs of librarianship classifications differ from those of academic classifications on the basis of the literary justification. More and more often, the zoologist wants to sort by Kladen: theorems of all offspring of an ancestor group. BCC may be better able to solve these issues by cladistics classing the types, but it allows to describe these other groups.
An even more worrying problem is that researchers often adapt their cladist classification in the wake of new genetics. That means that the BCC can profit from the latest findings (while the existing classification systems consider many groups inadequate; UDC is in the midst of upgrading its schedules).
Delays in the development of a hierarchy can therefore be justified. Many ( certainly more than the seven shared ranks) layers of clades, and clades on the same layer are of very different size - the categorization in the form of clades therefore represents a challenge of notation. Scientists' name can be and will be ambivalent; different rankings give the same beast different names:
This is why DDC is providing both popular and academic titles and is warning of ambiguities. Remark: It is anticipated that in general it is possible to treat bone structure by combining organism with tissue, organ and biologic system design. And we also need a place where we can class the different stages of development, from balls, spurs and so on, to fetuses and so on.
