Nomenclature and Classification Nomenclature and Classification. Defines and describes life history of a living organism, meaning the course of obligatory developmental transformations in an organism from fertilised zygote to maturity. Also discusses timing, though morphology of each form would be better placed in the field for Morphology. Describes biorhythms – those states or conditions characterised by regular repetition in time, whether on the scale of seconds, hours, days, or seasons. It could also cover phenomena such as “plant flowering” or “chewing rates”.


Life cycles are treated in the field for Life Cycle. Seasonal migration and reproduction are usually treated separately. Describes reproductive physiology and behavior, including mating and life history variables. Includes cues, strategies, restraints, rates. Any information on longevity, including the average period an organism can be expected to survive.

Describes growth rates, allometries, parameters known to be predictive, morphometrics. Can also include hypotheses of paedomorphy or neoteny, etc.
