writing assignment for Monday, February 1

Writing assignment for next class: identify and write approximately one page/paragraph on the subject of a popular, everyday (i.e., non-scientific) system of plant or animal classification found in our lives.  What is it?  How does it divide up the plant or animal world or a part thereof?  What principles of classification are used?  In what contexts does this appear and function?  Are there any particular cultural value associated with this?
