Why do we classify organisms?
Scientists classify organisms in order to study and include each organism along with its identification and habitat.
It helps in the specific identification of any given organism from a pool.
The study of a few individuals from each distinct group helps us to understand all the characters of a particular group. However, it mainly helps in scientific research.
It establishes the relationship among different organisms and helps to know about their evolution.
It provides information about plants and animals, which occur in specific geographical regions.
It helps in identifying evolutionary relationship by establishing the gradually increasing complexity (form and structure) of different groups of organisms.
