Any named group of organisms, not necessarily a clade.
(plural, taxa) A taxonomic group of any rank (e.g., species, genus, kingdom) to which individual organisms are assigned.
The name applied to a plant or animal group in a formal system of nomenclature.
the taxonomic group of plants of any rank.
Any identifiable group of taxonomically related organisms.
A category of organisms, based on their morphology and genetic code (based on "taxonomy," the study of grouping organisms by these characteristics.
( pl. taxa) - a group of organisms belonging to the same category or group (i.e., a species, family, order, or other classification grouping).
A taxonomic group of organisms. In this code, taxa may be clades or species, though the rules of this code apply only to clade names.
group of similar animals; usually refers to genus or smaller grouping ( plural- taxa).
a group or category, at any level, in a system for classifying plants or animals. pl. taxa.
The named classification unit (e.g. Homo sapiens, Hominidae, or Mammalia) to which individuals, or sets of species, are assigned. Higher taxa are those above the species level.
n. (Gr. taxis, arrangement) a taxonomic category or unit, as a species or genus.
(plural: taxa) a classification or group
pl. taxa[Gk. taxis, arrange, put in order] The named taxonomic unit at any given level.
Any taxonomic entity, such as a species, genus or phylum.
Any of the groups into which living things are formally classified by the scientific community, e.g. species. The taxa in the Linnean system are commonly Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species and sub-species/varieties/forms. Meagher, 1991; ERIN
generally refers to a species but it may sometimes be a unique form of a species or a closely related group of species. Taxa is used when referring to more than one taxon.
the named classification unit ( e.g. Panthera tigris, Panthera, Felidae, Carnivora or Mammalia) to which individuals, or sets of species, are assigned. Lower taxa are those at subspecies and species level ( e.g. Panthera tigris sumatrae). Higher taxa are those above the species level (at genus, family, order, class, etc. level; e.g. Panthera, Felidae, Carnivora, Mammalia). [JVG
A taxonomic group--that is, a group of individuals deserving of taxonomic status at some level in the hierarchy of taxonomic categories.
Any recognisable unit of classification. For example, species, genus, or class.
a class in a classification
a group/category of organisms/species that is clearly distinguishable from another such group
a group of organisms defined by particular reproductive, anatomical, or genetically determined similarities
a group of organisms that are, preferably, related to each other at some level
a part of plant community consisting of a certain set of individual plants distinguished according to genetic principle by the uniformity of their genesis, and regarded as a formal unit at any level of hierarchic classification
a phylogenetic grouping of organisms
a related group of animals such as bears, cats or great apes
a set of related species
a unique subspecies or a unique species without subspecies
a welldefined biological classification, such as a phylum or species
A group of plants, under the scientific classification system (e.g. a genus or species).
(plural taxa), any taxonomic category, such as sub-species, species, genus, family, etc.
(pl. taxa) The named classification unit to which individuals or sets of species are assigned, such as species, genus and order.
a taxonomic group of any rank into which organisms are categorised.
term for a taxonomic category (i.e., species, subspecies, genus, etc.)
(pl. taxa) any unit of classification
A taxonomic rank of any form, e.g. genus, subgenus, species etc.
(pl. taxa) Any group of organisms deserving of a formal name; i.e. Hyalophora cecropia is a taxon, the genus Hyalophora is a taxon, Saturniidae is a taxon. But the category names species, genus, family, and order, are not taxa.
(Paleoanthropology) A (probably biological) entity e.g. genes, individuals, species, genera. In cladistic analysis terminology a taxon.
any taxonomic category of whatever rank, species, genus, family etc.
The named taxonomic unit (e.g. Aurelia aurita, Ulmaridae, Semaeostomeae, Scyphozoa) to which individuals or groups of species are assigned. pl. taxa.
In biologic classification, pertaining to a unit of any rank (that is, a particular species, genus, family, class, order, or division or phylum) or the scientific name of that unit. A to F | G to L | M to R | S to Z
Term applied group of organisms comprising a given taxonomic category
(pl. taxa) A named group of organisms, not necessarily a natural (monophyletic) unit (cf. terminal).
A taxonomic group of any rank (pl. taxa)
A general term for a unit of Biological Classification. The term 'Taxon' (plural Taxa) is often equivalent to 'Species' but is used instead as it can refer to a sub-species, or it could be the name for an aggregate of species that cannot be easily separated.
Animal or plant group having natural relations
A group or category, at any level, in a system for classifying plants or animals. Parent Term: Plant_groups Difficulty Level
a classificatory group of any rank, e.g. family, genus, species, subspecies. Plural: taxa.
A particular group of organisms of any taxonomic rank. For example, a phylum, a genus, or a species. Plural is taxa.
Term applied to any taxonomic group at any taxonomic rank.
(pl. taxa). A taxonomic unit, such as a species, genus, subgenus, family.
(pl. taxa) A group of animals classified as a named set, supposedly of the same type.
A category discovered but not made/created by humans; the existence of taxa is an empirical question, not a semantic issue.
A taxonomic rank, such as family, genus, or species.
Similar to the word "species," but used to describe a more general, less specific group of organisms; plural, taxa.
A group of organisms that has been formally named (e.g., species, genus, family, order, etc.).
a group of organisms in a taxonomic hierarchy that have affinity to one another.
a group of organisims that are considered distinct enough to be treated as a separate unit. As an example, the family Chelidae and all subordinate members of that family would belong to the same taxon or taxonomic group.

A classification category for a group of organisms.
a group of organisms of any rank (e.g., family, genus, species)
A taxonomic group of any rank, including all the subordinate groups; taxonomic unit.

A general term used to refer to any taxonomic category of individuals believed to be related to one another (e.g., species, genus, family, order, etc.). The plural is taxa.
A taxonomic grouping, of which there are seven: Kingdom | Phylum (or Division) | Class | Order | Family | Genus | Species.
A taxonomic group of any rank, e.g. species, family, class, etc.; an organism contained in such a group. The plural is taxa.

(pl. taxa) unit of zoological classification, such as genus, species, family
A taxon is category in the classification of living organisms. The taxa (the plural of taxon) in the Linnean system are kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species.
(pl. taxa)- formal unit or category used in the classification of organisms. the science of classification of organisms.
A taxon (plural taxa or taxons), or taxonomic unit, is a grouping of organisms (named or unnamed). Once named, a taxon will usually have a rank and can be placed at a particular level in a hierarchy.
