Binomial Nomenclature Helps Identifying An Organism Better
The same organism can be called different names based on the locality. When going from one place to another, the name of the organism varies. This name is called the local name or vernacular name. Since an organism can be called by different names in different places, studying the organism on a global scale becomes difficult. Hence, each organism is given a scientific name, composed of its genus name and species name. This helps to identify the particular organism uniformly across the world. This method of naming is called 'binomial nomenclature'and it works on the basis of a set of defined rules. The given video provides an insight into the significance and process of binomial nomenclature.
