    Binomial system given by Gaspard bahuin is taxonomic study of principles nd procedures of classification...it states first identification of org. Then its nomenclature i.e. naming of org. Nd lastly its classification in appropriate group according to its characteristics...it include taxnomic arrangement of org. From its actual to its higher level...i.e from species to kingdom...

    The entire two-part name must be written in italics (or underlined when handwritten). The genus name is always written first. The genus name must be capitalized. The specific epithet is never capitalized. There's a gap between the two names, genus and the specific epithet. These are considered as the basic rules.

    In binomial nomenclature, the genus name forms the first part
