The hierarchy of classification was developed by Carolus Linnaeus. It refers to the organisation or classification of organisms in the order of rank or importance. According to this system, kingdom is the highest rank. It is divided into phyla or divisions, which are further subdivided into classes. Further divisions include order, family, genus and species, in that order. Thus, species is the basic unit of classification.
