A Scientist's Work: Who Gets the Credit?

Why does a scientist who did the research first get their work accredited to a different scientist? In the case of Aristotle and Linnaeus: Was it because, even though Aristotle founded the basics for the classification of organisms, Linnaeus established the system (binomial nomenclature) we use toda...

Oh, I get it.
So these classes are the three ways to classify organism, the three systems or schemes (if you will) are used to organize organisms. The number is used to denotate how many classifications are in each.

Ahh, I see. Thanks! :0)

I'm going to guess that the number signifies how many of each there are. Ah, well, thanks anyway.

No, at least the biological species concept says so. I think only animals from similar species can interbreed and be able to produce a hybrid.

The "legs" of the DNA are made up of a phosphate group and a 5-carbon sugar. The "rungs" of the DNA are the nucleotides, and those are adanine, gaunine, thymine, and cytosine. Adenine and Gaunine are purines, while Thymine and Cytosine are pyrimidines. Purines are made up of a 6-carbon sugar bonded ...

I don't know if his notes were incomplete or that I just don't understand his notes, but his notes read: Classes: 1. 3 Domain 2. 5 Kingdom 3. 2 Empire I understand ...
