Classification
1) taxonomy - the placing of animals and plants in a series of increasingly specialized groups because of similarities in structure, origins etc., that indicate a common relationship (from Makin, 1991). 2) biotopes - the process of identifying distinctive and recurrent groupings of species with their associated habitat and describing them within a structured framework.
