Taxonomy (biology)
Taxonomy (from Ancient Greek τάξις (taxis), meaning 'arrangement', and -νομία (-nomia), meaning 'method') is the science of defining and naming groups of biological organisms on the basis of shared characteristics. Organisms are grouped together into taxa (singular: taxon) and these groups are given a taxonomic rank; groups of a given rank can be aggregated to form a super-group of higher rank, thus creating a taxonomic hierarchy. The principal ranks in modern use are domain, kingdom, phylum (division is sometimes used in botany in place of phylum), class, order, family, genus and species

These flaps of skin cover the limbs when they retract into the shell. It is unclear what protection the flaps offer against predators.[2] Indian flapshell turtles are widespread and common in the South Asian provinces.Contents1 Description 2 Status 3 Distribution 4 Habitat and ecology 5 Reproduction 6 Scientific interest and potential value 7 Specific dangers and threats to species survival 8 References 9 Further reading 10 External linksDescription[edit] The carapace of L. punctata viewed from above is broadly oval in adults, but more circular in young, widest just anterior to hind limbs
