Objectives of Classification

 

Importantly, the researchers and scientists practising ‘taxonomy’ i.e., the laws and principles of classification of living organisms, do make great efforts to bring into being logical and justifiable classifications of microorganisms that essentially possess the following two cardinal qualities, namely:

 

(a) Stability : It has been duly observed that such ‘classifications’ that are essentially liable to experience rapid, radical alterations, practically tantamount to utter confusion. Hence, sincere and ear nest efforts must be geared into action to put forward such universally acceptable classifications that would hardly require any major changes, whatsoever, as and when new streams of information(s) crop up.

 

(b) Predictability: It is ardently vital and important that by acquiring enough knowledge with respect to the critical characteristic features of one specific bonafide member of a ‘taxonomic group’, it must be quite possible and feasible to solemnly predict that the other members of the same identical group presumably have almost similar characteristics as well. In case, the said objective is not accom-plished satisfactorily, the ‘classification’ could be considered as either invalid or of little value.
