What is the taxon for monkey?
ask some person with some animal knowledge Answer I have a problem with the question. Taxon is a noun meaning one of the levels in the classification hierarchy. For example, class, order and family are all taxa. What you probably want is the taxonomy or classification of monkeys. Domain Eukarya Kingdom Animalia Phylum Chordata Subphylum Vertebrata Class Mammalia Order Primates Primates include lemurs, apes, tarsiers, bushbabies, humans, lorises and potoos as well as monkeys. There are two parvorders that include monkeys (See Wikipedia, 'Monkey'), Catarrhini and Platyrhini. Patyrhini includes the New World Monkeys and Catarrhini comprises the Old World Monkeys. Examples of monkey genera Papio Callicebus Leontopithecus Macaca Cercopithecus Semnopithecus Callithrix In English, monkeys include Mangabeys macaques baboons leaf monkeys/langurs night monkeys vervet monkeys patas monkeys drills mandrills samango monkeys marmosets tamarins capuchins colobus monkeys guenons

A lazarus taxon is an animal that was thought to be extinct at one point, but for a few months, years, or even centuries, the animal is found again. One example is the Coelo…canth. It was thought to become extinct millions of years ago, but one specimen in Asia (I think) was found in the 30s. It was later found in Madagascar. It is endangered. They reach up from 60 centimeters to 1 meter. They mainly eat fish, squid, octopuses and even small sharks. They are preyed on by seals, sea lions, large sharks and orcas. Another one is the peccary. Believe it or not, this is a lazarus taxon, it was thought to be extinct in the pleistocene, but it was found again in the recent times. They are about one meter. They mainly eat vegetation, but they also eat rodents, lizards, snakes and even small birds. They are eaten by jaguars, bush dogs, coyotes and anacondas. The collared one is least concern, but the chaocoan one is endangered. The Takhae. The takhae is a small bird from New Zealand. It was actually thought to be extinct quite recently, at the same time as the moa, at about 1500. But, it was found again in the 40s. They eat vegetation. But also eat insects and worms. They have no natural predator, but they are eaten by introduced species like stoats.
A domain is the largest taxon. kingdom-animalia Domain

The taxon of the ginkgo is Linnaeus.
please flag this question it does not make any sense.
The plural form of the noun 'taxon' is 'taxa.'
The Smallest Taxon is Species. The Second smallest is genus. The third is family.

No. A taxon is one or more groups of organisms. An order is one of the many specific ranks available to classify taxa under. While it is true that an order consists of a g…roup of organisms, it doesn't refer to the organism itself, it's just a hierarchical naming system; thus, isn't a taxon.
The largest is a Kingdom and the smallest is a species.
