why do we need to name the organisms with binomial nomenclature?

Expert Answer:

Binomial nomenclature is used to avoid confusion among the names the organisms. There are a vast number of organisms living in the world. If we call all these organisms by different names, no organism can ever be identified globally. Hence the system of binomial nomenclature was introduced where each organism is named using its genus and species name (in Latin). This name is used to identify organisms universally. Hence no confusion remains in its identification.
