Classification of living things
Can all living things be classified?
Yes, they can. But sometimes it takes a lot of study to figure out the
correct classification. Also, we haven't found all living things yet. Classification
is now easier and better than it used to be, because we can sequence genes from a
new organism and compare them with other known organisms, to see what the new animal
is most closely related to.
