Scientific Names of Plants and Animals

Scientific names of plants and animals

Each and every recognized species on earth has been given its own scientific names. Scientists have given these scientific names to study these species in a proper way and to avoid any types of confusion. These scientific names are the combination of two terms, the genus names and the species name. The first parts of these names are in capital letters and the second parts of these names are in small letter. The process of these assigning scientific names to animals and plants are called ‘taxonomy.’ This process is developed by a Swedish scientist ‘Carolus Linnaeus’.
