Applied Science vs. Pure Science

Utilitarian vs. Search for Truth

Taxonomy = naming of taxa

taxa = groups of “things”

taxon = one group or category

doctrine of signatures
Doctrine of signatures

Part of a Utilitarian taxonomic system

utilitarian applied science
Utilitarian Applied Science
  • Identifying plants
  • Phenetic (artificial) classifications
  • Dichotomous keys
  • what most of us need/want to get from this course (learning how to ID plants using dichotomous keys)

Utilitarian vs. Search for Truth

pure science
PURE Science
  • Cladistic systems (phylogenies) focusing on how taxa evolved rather than ID use
  • monophyletic principles
  • DEEP GREEN & phyloclades http://tolweb.org/tree?group=life
