What are the difficulties that you would face in classification of animals, if common fundamental features are not taken into account? | NCERT solution | Class 12 Biology | Unit-4 Animal Kingdom

Q.1:- What are the difficulties that you would face in classification of animals, if common fundamental features are not taken into account?

 

Answer

If we consider specific characteristics instead of fundamental features then each organism will be placed in a separate group and the entire objective of classification would not be achieved.
Classification of animals is also important in comparing different organisms and judging their individual evolutionary significance. If only a single characteristic is considered, then this objective would not be achieved.
