TEXT I
Classification, in biology, the identification, naming, and grouping of organisms
into a formal system. The huge numbers of living forms must be named and arranged in
an orderly manner so that biologists all over the world can be sure they know the exact
organism that is being examined and discussed.
Groups of organisms must be defined by the selection of important
characteristics, or shared traits, that make the members of each group similar to one
another and unlike members of other groups.

Modern classification schemes also attempt to place groups into categories that
will reflect an understanding of the evolutionary processes underlying the similarities and
differences among organisms.
Such categories form a kind of pyramid, or hierarchy, in which the different
levels should represent the different degrees of evolutionary relationship. The hierarchy
extends upward from several million species, each made up of individual organisms that
are closely related, to a few kingdoms, each containing large assemblages of organisms,
many of which are only distantly related.

TEXT II
Recent Research. The metals, the halogens, and silicon have been traditional
subjects of research for inorganic chemists. Since World War II, the field of boron
chemistry has grown rapidly because of interest in the chemical similarities of boron to
carbon and silicon. For example, boron forms covalent bonds with itself and with certain
other elements, much as do carbon and silicon.
In metallic chemistry, the synthesis of organometallic and coordination
compounds, and the study of their chemical and physical properties, have attracted
interest among chemists during the past three decades. Organometallic compounds are
organic molecules containing at least one atom of a metal bonded to a carbon atom. A
familiar example of this class of substance is tetraethyl lead, which is often added to the
gasoline that fuels internal-combustion engines. Other organometallic compounds include
catalysts used in plastic manufacture and in organic synthesis.
The molecules of coordination compounds are characterized by a central metallic
atom surrounded by and bonded to nonmetallic atoms or groups of atoms termed ligands.
Examples of this class of compound include hemoglobin, chlorophyll, vitamin B12, and
many catalysts, dyes, and pigments.

Other branches of inorganic chemistry include solid-state chemistry, which is
concerned with, among other things, the chemistry of semiconductors; ceramic chemistry;
high-temperature and high-pressure chemistry; geochemistry; and the chemistry of the
transuranium elements, the elements of the actinide series, and the rare earth elements.
