"Scientific Naming," aka "Binomial nomenclature," is the official system for giving names to organisms. They usually are derived from Latin. There are really a couple of advantages to the "scientific" naming system, and-one disadvantage. First off, scientific naming is standardized.
What is the second name in a scientific name called? The binomial nomenclature system combines two names into one to give all species unique scientific names. The first partof a scientific name is called the genus. The second partof a species name is the specific epithet.
How is a scientific name written? The binomial system of nomenclature is structured so that the scientific name of a plant consists of two names: (1) the genus or generic name, and (2) the specific epithet or species name. The genus name is always underlined or italicized. The first letter of the genus name is alwayscapitalized.
