___ is the study of biological diversity and of the evolutionary relationships among organisms
__ is the subdivision of systematics which deals with biological diversity
__ is the subdivision of systematics which deals with evolutionary relationships.
Taxonomy consisting of three associated activities:

Naming groups according to accepted rules
A ___ is a unit of classification
biologists use a system of classification and nomenclature originated by ___, an 18th Century Swedish naturalist.
Linnaeus created a hierarchy of taxonomic levels. The main levels in use today are:
Modern biological classification attempts to group organisms according to their evolutionary relationships (_____) and thus represents a hypothesis regarding relatedness.
Two species in the same taxon are ___ closely related to each other than they are to species in other taxa of the same level.
The classification system is ___
