  • biodiversity and classification
    • number of different species on earth
    • range of different types of organisms
    • the genetic variation between the same species
    • maintaining biodiversity prevents extinction
    • the more plants there are, the more resources there are
    • the rate of extinction is increasing
    • there is a correlation between the world's population and the number of species extinctions
    • some extinction is due to human activity
    • hunting can lead to extinction
    • destroying habitats can lead to extinction
    • organisms are grouped according to their similarities in their characteristics
    • genetics and physical features can be used to classify species
    • there are 5 kingdoms, bacteria, fungi, algae, plants and animals
    • each kingdom is divided into lots of groups called species
    • classification shows the evolutionary relationships between organisms
