Expert Answer:

Nomenclature in simple words is a system of words used to name things in a particular discipline. In biology, we usually follow the binomial nomenclature wherein two terms are used to denote a species of living organism, the first one indicating the genus and the second one the species. This system was developed in the 18th century by Carolus Linnaeus, a Swedish naturalist. The genus name is the first name and always written with a capital letter whereas the species name is the second name with a lower case letter.
