Plants of a single species can breed with each other and produce baby
plants of the same species. A species has two names: the first name has a capital letter and is rather like a surname and the second is like a given
name. Species in the same genus are quite closely related, like the Sugar
Maple (Acer saccharum) and the Red Maple (Acer rubrum) which are both in the genus Acer. Maple trees (genus Acer) are in
Family Aceraceae, which is in Order Sapindales, which is in Class Angiospermae, which is in Phylum Tracheophyta. Other groups may be put into
a classification system like "subphylum" which comes between "phylum" and "class".
