Taxonomic Key

Use the following taxonomic groupings and organisms in the next key. You must include all of them. In two cases, you will include both the polyp and medusa forms in the key. (Hint: They do not have to be near each other in the key). Remember, you need 2 features per step. You can make a key to the phyla and then separate keys for the phyla that have multiple specimens. A few of the higher taxonomic levels will not have a corresponding specimen.

You will not get credit if it is clear you are using a different specimen from the same genus or similar common name.

The task was to provide key for all the phylums mentioned in the database of the student. First the key was supposed to be developed for individual phylums and then for separate phylums and their their classes, sub classes, orders and their respective specimens.
