Binomial nomenclature is the formal naming system of naming different species. It is sometimes known as the latin name of an animal. The first name is the genus and the second is the name of the species. for Example a human is a Homo sapiens. The second name is always in the lower case. When handwrriting, a Binomial Nomenclature of a animal should be underlined, while when word processing, it should be in italics. The genus should have its first letter capitalized, while the species should be all lower case.
