Research in biology would be impossible without a common framework for grouping and distinguishing species. Carl Linnaeus was the first to propose a classification system of organisms. His system developed into the organizational structure used in the life sciences today. Viewers also learn how new scientific names are created and how the existing system has been further refined using DNA studies.
