Animal Kingdom Poster

Animal Kingdom Poster

A111 Animal Kingdom 2
    The traditional Linnaeus phyla-order-family animal classification system was the basis for our earlier Animal Kingdom poster, which showed only the living species. This system has been replaced by the new cladistics classification system. This new way of looking at animal life has had an enormous impact on the study of animal development and prehistoric life. It is taught in all the major universities and is now making its way into the grade schools.
    Animal Kingdom 2 presents the new cladistics classification system. Six newly established phyla / clades have been added plus eleven containing only extinct species. This increased the number of phyla / clades from 27 to 44. They are grouped into the nine primary clades shown and explained in Animal Development, thus the two posters complement each other.
    Linnaeus did not know about prehistoric life and his classification system groups together similar living species. It has been the basis for animal science for over two-and-a-half centuries; it is cited in so many documents that some scientists who only work with modern day animals have been reluctant to abandon it. Many biology textbooks have not yet been updated to reflect this revolutionary new way of looking at animal life.
   These factors have resulted in both systems being in use during this transitional period. Because of this, both Animal Kingdom 2 and Animal Development cite traditional phyla names, rather than the clade names, which are almost identical. This all-new edition shows almost twice as many species as the earlier one. It is an essential reference chart for teachers, students and professionals dealing with both living and prehistoric species.

Three poster Set

Animal Development, Milestones of Evolution and our new Animal Kingdom poster are designed to be used both individually and together.  Animal Development focuses on the invertebrates and Milestones of Vertebrate Evolution picks up where it leaves off.  Both show how the various clades evolved; Animal Kingdom show the results.
