Nomenclature  - In biology, nomenclature consists of the rules of assigning and using scientific names to organisms.  Nomenclature works with but is separate from taxonomy, the system of classification of organisms.  The rules or code for nomenclature allows only one correct name to an organism within a single system of classification.  However, the code also allows for as many different yet correct names as there are different systems of classification.
