I don;t understand what a taxon is :S
I looked at the wikipedia definition and I don;t understand it at all. Could someone please explain it to me a simple terms. Thanks.
taxon is a taxonomic group:
tax·on·o·my Listen to the pronunciation of taxonomy
French taxonomie, from tax- + -nomie -nomy
1: the study of the general principles of scientific classification : systematics2: classification ; especially : orderly classification of plants and animals according to their presumed natural relationships
nomenclature just means name; is that what wasn't clear in Wikipedia?
