Classification of Organisms Flow Chart




For the flow chart "Figure 4, Experiment 2 - Classification of Organisms Flow Chart," these are the kingdoms that should be in the red boxes, going from top to bottom;Bacteria, Fungi, Plantae, Animalia (yes), Protista (no);Attachments Preview;taxonomy.doc Download Attachment;Experiment 1: Dichotomous Key Practice;A dichotomous key is an identification tool that starts with a broad defining;characteristics and splits into two options until an organism can be identified. In this;experiment, you will identify organisms by their binomial nomenclature using a;dichotomous key.;Materials;Dichotomous Key;Images of Organisms;Procedure;1. Start by observing organism i (Figure 2). Once you have taken notice of its;physical characteristics, use the dichotomous key (Figure 3) to identify the;organism.;2. Start at number 1 on the key and decide if the organism has feature 1a or;feature 1b.;3. Whichever option you choose, follow the dotted line over to the next step that;will state Go to #.;4. Go to that number and again decide between the two options.;5. Eventually you will wind up at a two name scientific name.;6. Once you have identified organism i record your finding in Table 3.;7. Repeat Steps 1 - 6 for all of the organisms in the dichotomous key (Figure 3).;Table 3: Dichotomous Key Results;Organism;Binomial Name;i;2013 eScience Labs;LLC.;All Rights Reserved;ii;iii;iv;v;vi;vii;viii;ix;x;xi;xii;xiii;2013 eScience Labs;LLC.;All Rights Reserved;Figure 2: Organisms to be identified;2013 eScience Labs;LLC.;All Rights Reserved;Figure 3: Dichotomous key;Post-Lab Questions;1.

Select the first organism from Table 4 (E. coli).;2. Use the tree (Figure 4, located at the end of this procedure) start at the;base, and answer each question until the organism reaches the end of a;branch. Write the organisms name in the red box.;3. Repeat this for the remaining organisms.;4. After classification, fill in Table 2 with the correct kingdom for each organism.;Table 4: Key Characteristics of Some Organisms;Organism;Kingdom;Defined;Nucleus;Mobile;E.

Did this series of questions correctly organize each organism? Why or why not?;2. What additional questions would you ask to further categorize the items within;the kingdoms (Hint: think about other organisms in the kingdom and what makes;them different than the examples used here)?;3. What questions would you have asked instead of the ones that you answered;about when classifying the organisms?
