The cell type that would be found in a Bacillus anthracis

  1. People have been organizing nature into systems for a long time. A medieval system, the “Scala Naturae” (Ladder of
    Nature) organized living beings with plants on the lowest rungs, and ran up through humans and on to God Himself. On
    what are modern classification systems based, both generally and specifically? What information would a biologist
    consider when deciding where to place a newly-discovered organism? Is the proper placement of an organism always
    obvious?
  2. Describe the cell type that would be found in a Bacillus anthracis, an elephant, and a Venus fly trap. How are these
    cells different?
