Us scientist don't actully call classification "clalssification", we call it Taxonomy because that Is the type/method of classification that we use. It basically means to "name things".
The system that other scientist as well as me use (taxonomy) was created by Carolus Linnaeus. Where a level of organiztion/clasification is called eather a Taxon or a taxonomic category. Carolus was born in 1707 but now rests in peace since 1778.
In taxonomy there are many key words to know such as: Genus, Species, Family, Order, Class, Phylum and kingdom.
Species are groups of close-related organisms that can interbreed. An example of this are dogs, which are closely related and can create offsprings between them.
Genus is a group that has really closely related species and it goes over species but under family. An Example is Rosa which has over 100 types/species of roses.
Family goes between Genus and Order. It is a group of one or more genera that have lots of characteristics in common. An Example is "Felidae", (cats).
Order is the name of a group that consist of similar families. An example is "carnivoria" which are large omnivores and carnivores.
Class is a group that consist of similar Orders. An example is "Mamamlia" Which are mammals.
Kingdom is the largest Taxom, it consist of similar phylia. An Exampe of it is "Animalia" (animals).
Phylum is a group of similar classes.
