Taxonomy Tip of the Day The pufferfish The pufferfish genus Fugu has recently been renamed Takifugu in the taxonomy database. This is based on the recommendation of: Matsuura, K. 1990. The pufferfish genus Fugu Abe, 1952, a junior subjective synonym of Takifugu Abe, 1949. Bull. Natn. Sci. Mus., Tokyo, Ser. A. 18(1):15-20. Takifugu includes the species Takifugu rubripes (formerly Fugu rubripes), which is a well known model organism for the vertebrate genome. Any sequence from Takifugu rubripes can still be retrieved by searching on 'Fugu rubripes', because Fugu rubripes is included in the database as a synonym of Takifugu rubripes.

Terms Pertaining to Zoological Nomenclature
A specimen designated from the type series that is the opposite sex of the holotype.
Available name
A name that is correctly proposed according to the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. An available name is not necessarily the valid name.
Any rank within the classification hierarchy, e.g., family, subfamily, subspecies.
Change of rank
When a name is moved from one level of the classification system to another, e.g., when De Lotto (1955) moved Ceroplastes destructor brevicauda from the subspecies to the species rank C. brevicauda this was a change of rank.
A system of nested hierarchical categories used to efficiently store information about the diversity of life.
To place a taxon in a classification system.
A term no longer recognized in the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature; synonymous with syntypes.
An intentional change to a previously proposed name, e.g., Lindinger proposed the emendation Hemiberlesea for the armored scale Hemiberlesia indicating that it was originally improperly formed.

WebQuest Taskonomy:
A Taxonomy of Tasks
The task is the single most important part of a WebQuest. It provides a goal and focus for student energies and it makes concrete the curricular intentions of the designer. A well designed task is doable and engaging, and elicits thinking in learners that goes beyond rote comprehension. There must be fifty ways to task your learner. Since 1995, teachers have been adapting the WebQuest model to their own needs and settings, and from their collective wisdom and experience some common task formats have emerged. This taxonomy describes those formats and suggests ways to optimize their use. It provides a language for discussing WebQuest tasks that should enhance our ability to design them well. It's likely that the task in a given WebQuest will combine elements of two or more of these task categories. The categories below are in no particular order other than the placement of Retelling tasks first because of their simplicity and borderline status as the foundation of a good WebQuest. With eleven other task types to choose from, it's time to go beyond mere retelling! Definitions Tips Retelling Tasks Sometimes all you're asking of students is to absorb some information and then demonstrate that they've understood it. Research reports like these are bread-and-butter activities that don't break much new ground in educational practice, but they can provide an easy introduction to the use of the Web as an information source.

A Supernovae Taxonomy Flow Chart
Description of the Flow Chart
The observational classes are in sharp-cornered boxes. Theoretical interpretations (i.e. possible progenitors ) are listed in the boxes with rounded corners. Examples are listed underneath the observational classes. It should be noted that SN 1987A had a fairly odd behavior (for fairly well understood reasons) and is certainly not a prototypical SN IIP. It was rather sub-luminous, and while it may represent a certain population of sub-luminous SN II, we will probably not detect too many members of this population precisely because they are sub-luminous. SN 1987A may be better classified as an SN IIpec. A theoretical interpretation of observations has driven the organization of this plot. At the left side, there is little or no hydrogen present in the ejecta; as one moves right, there is increasing evidence for hydrogen. SN IIP have a plateau in their post-maximum light curve, while SN IIL do not (Barbon et al 1979). SN IIL and IIP may
Current Classification Scheme
The current classification scheme has these broad divisions: SN I show no hydrogen lines in their early spectra; SN II do show hydrogen in their early spectra. Subclasses determined by spectral evidence are denoted by lower-case letters, Ia, Ib, Ic, IIb (Woosley et al. 1987; Filippenko 1988), and IIn (Schlegel 1990) . Subclasses determined by certain properties of the (usually)

Bloom s taxonomy *. Benjamin Bloom created this taxonomy for categorizing level of abstraction of questions that commonly occur in educational settings.
Bloom's Taxonomy Benjamin Bloom created this taxonomy for categorizing level of abstraction of questions that commonly occur in educational settings. The taxonomy provides a useful structure in which to categorize test questions, since professors will characteristically ask questions within particular levels, and if you can determine the levels of questions that will appear on your exams, you will be able to study using appropriate strategies.

Fungi Animalia Protoctista ... Biosphere Monthly Feature: The Plant Kingdom This site is dedicated to the beauty and science of nature and to the joys nature brings to those who explore it. The joy of seeing "familiar faces" everywhere; the invigoration a nature walk brings to both body and soul; the beauty and diversity of our Earthly co-habitants; and the pleasure of eating something found along the way. The material here is organized according to the biological principles of Taxonomy, or classification: We live on a planet called Earth. Biologists call the Earth and its atmosphere the Biosphere . The Biosphere is composed of organic and inorganic matter. Organic matter (stuff containing carbon) is again divided into living and non-living objects. All living beings are currently divided into five Kingdoms. Four of these Kingdoms are depicted above: Plantae , the plant kingdom, studied in the field of Botany Fungi , the kingdom of fungus and molds, studied as Mycology Animalia , the animal kingdom, the domain of Zoology ; and Protoctista , a catch-all for all other "higher-order" organisms from single-celled microbes to large seaweeds (algae).

    • defines; describes; enumerates; identifies; labels; lists; matches; names; reads; records; reproduces; selects; states; views.
  • Comprehension : Grasping (understanding) the meaning of informational materials.
    • classifies; cites; converts; describes; discusses; estimates; explains; generalizes; gives examples; makes sense out of; paraphrases; restates (in own words); summarizes; traces; understands.
  • Application : The use of previously learned information in new and concrete situations to solve problems that have single or best answers.

    A flexible format for encoding taxonomic descriptions for computer processing. It can be used to produce naturallanguage descriptions, keys, classifications, and information-retrieval systems.
    The DELTA format (DEscription Language for TAxonomy) is a flexible method for encoding taxonomic descriptions for computer processing. It has been adopted by the International Taxonomic Databases Working Group (TDWG) as a standard for data exchange. DELTA-format data can be used to produce natural-language descriptions, interactive or conventional keys, cladistic or phenetic classifications, and information-retrieval systems.

Current taxonomy of the rhizobia [Updated 6th February 2004] The species listed here are all of the most current validly published names for the rhizobia. The rhizobia are nitrogen fixing bacteria that form root nodules on legume plants. Most of these bacterial species are in the Rhizobiacae family in the alpha-proteobacteria. Most rhizobia are in either the Rhizobium Mesorhizobium Sinorhizobium or Bradyrhizobium genera. However recent research has shown that there are other rhizobial species outside these genera.
    In addition there are other non-rhizobia species present in the Rhizobium genus, such as Rhizobium radiobacter , formally known as Agrobacterium tumefaciens . however these are not listed here as the ' Agrobacterium ' do not form nitrogen fixing symbiotic root nodules, and are therefore not rhizobia.
