list Linnaeus' the seven steps in the classification of living things

biologists have devised ways of naming and classifying them according to their similarities and differences
The number of groups most scientists use puts each living thing into is seven
the broadest division within the taxonomy group is Kingdom
the group which follows the Kingdom Group Phylum
the group which follows the Phylum Group class
the group which follows the class Group order
the group which follows the order Group family
the group which follows the family Group Genus
the group which follows the Genus Group species
the first and last name of the scientist who established the system of taxonomy Carolus Linnaeus
the primary basis for classifying living things is the body structure
the group of plants with vascular tissue is called tracheophytes
the group of plants with no vascular tissue are called bryophytes
tracheophytes are classified based on their ability to bear or not to bear seeds
the name of the group of plants which means naked seed? Gymnosperms
seedless tracheophytes reproduce by using spores
the tiny hairlike structures which attach moss plants to soil rizoids
the word used to describe the inability of plants to move around sessile
the one important thing that animals cannot do but plants can in relation to food to live photosynthesis
according to body structure the animals with backbones fit into the general group vertebrates
according to body structure the animals without backbones fit into the general group invertebrates
vertebrates are classified in the phylum vertebrata
the animals without backbones are classified as invertebrates
the phylum to which segmented worms belong Annelida
among the most numerous of all the animals roundworms
the body part responsible for locomotion in segmented worms setae
flat worms belong to the phylum platyhelminthes
organisms that live in or on other organisms and obtain food from them parasites
the phylum to which roundworms belong Nematoda
the phylum that uses a protruding muscular foot for locomotion Mollusca
the jellyfish is a member of this phylum colenterata
the most distinguishing characteristic of a sponge is that it is missing what system nervous
members of the phylum mollusca all have a _________ hump housing their internal organs visceral
the skin like organ that covers the visceral hump of the mollusks is the mantle
