Chapter 1 'The Living World' elaborated in the NCERT Solutions for Class 11 Biology explains the fundamental concepts of Biology, like what is Living, Diversification in the World of Living, Taxonomic Classifications, Taxonomical Aids, and others. The living world is substantial in terms of variety as millions of plants and animals have been discovered and described so far, but an innumerable variety of species remains uncovered.
The chapter further talks about the taxonomic studies conducted on different species of plants and animals and the usefulness of those studies in forestry, agriculture, industry, and learning about our natural resources and the diversity it has. Multiple taxonomical aids have been developed by Taxonomists that assist in identifying, naming, and classifying organisms. The sub-topics discussed in this chapter are given below.
Different aspects of the living world have been taught in this section. Students will find explanations on the characteristics of living organisms that vary concerning size, colour, habitat, physiological, and morphological attributes.
Biologists develop certain protocols according to which living organisms are recognized, named (nomenclature), and classified. This subtopic deals with these protocols, which has led to the emergence of different kinds of studies of diversity found in living organisms.
Under Taxonomic Categories, various aspects of living organisms are classified and talked about are referred to as Taxonomy.
In this subtopic, Taxonomical Aids evolved by biologists have been discussed. These taxonomical aids mean the basis of resemblances and distinctness in every organism according to which each of them is identified and given a biological or scientific name.
