Dear aarya_t@ymail.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

Answer to one of your questions is given below:

Significance of coleom:


  • Coelomic cavity or coelom is the fluid-filled cavity where the internal organs remain suspended.
  • It is formed within the mesoderm layer of the embryo during the development of organisms.
  • Coelom absorbs shocks and allows the muscles to grow independently.

Significance of scientific nomenclature:

  • Scientific names are followed and understood all over the world.
  • These names do not differ according to country or language.
  • The scientific name is unique and can be used to identify an organism anywhere around the world.
  • It helps to maintain individual identity.
  • It enables us to understand the relationship between different organisms.
