Classification is the process of organizing organisms into groups based on common characteristics. In this unit we will learn about the current and a few of the previous systems of classification as well as identify the major categories and the characteristics that place an organism into that category. We will also learn how to use a dichotomous key. This is a tool used to identify an unknown organism based on a series of questions.
