Question: Can you identify the correct sequence of taxonomic categories?
- Species → Order → Phylum → Kingdom
- Genus → Species → Order → Kingdom
- Species → Genus →Order → Phylum
Answer: The correct hierarchical order of taxonomic categories in ascending order is as follows: -
Species → Genus → Family → Order → Class → Phylum → Kingdom
Hence, options (a) and (c) represent the correct sequences of taxonomic categories. In a sequence (b), species must first be written, followed by genus. Therefore, option (b) does not represent the correct sequence of taxonomic categories.
