  Genus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In biology, a genus (plural genera) is a grouping in the classification of living organisms having one or more related and morphologically similar species.
It is, however, not allowed for two genera within the same kingdom to have the same name.
This explains why the platypus genus is Ornithorhynchus — although the name Platypus was chosen by George Shaw in 1799, that name had already been given to the ambrosia beetle by Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Herbst in 1793.

The decision to omit fossil genera was not taken lightly, and not without the endorsement of the palaeobotanists concerned.

If only the rhacophorid genera are analyzed with a hypothetical ancestor to polarize the states (as Liem did) then the tree with the basal (Aglyptodactylus, Mantidactylus) clade is shorter by one step (Figure 6), and character 1 takes six steps and character 14 takes three steps to evolve on the tree.
Our objective was to distinguish genera with multiple representatives from other such genera by characters or sets of characters, and better understand the relationships of species traditionally assigned to a certain genus but that are at odds with other members of that genus according to these characters.
The mantelline genera of Mantella and Mantidactylus were sister taxa based on the synapomorphy of an abbreviated mating contact, and the (Mantella, Mantidactylus) clade was sister to the Rhacophoridae based on the synapomorphy of intercalary elements.

The aim of the classification is to group related genera or species together, rather than attempt to reflect relationships evenly.
For example, if a group of genera has been recognized as a family but a more recent study shows that these genera are specialized or highly modified members of another family, the genera are moved to the ‘new’ family but may be retained there as a subfamily, thereby keeping those related genera together.
A few genera or species are not placed within families in the classification.

 WHAT ARE ELLIPTIC GENERA
Elliptic genera correspond to doubly-periodic (elliptic) functions and retain many of the properties of the signature and the Â-genus which appear as limit cases of elliptic genera.
In particular, elliptic genera behave nicely in the presence of a Lie group action on a Spin manifold (rigidity theorem).
One of the main attractions of elliptic genera is in their connection to various areas of mathematics and physics: cobordism and K-theory, formal groups, modular forms, Lie group theory (both finite-dimensional and infinite-dimensional), string theory.

Because of their morphological similarity, however, they may be disguised as belonging to one of the other cypripedioid genera listed along with other orchids in Appendix II of CITES.
Molecular analyses concentrated on some of the rarest cypripedioid orchids from the genera Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium, which are sometimes poached from the wild and smuggled across international borders disguised as common species.
The set of DNA markers examined for this project are diagnostic of these genera, appear to be robust, and are suitable for rapid assay to avoid unnecessary complication in the legitimate trade of orchids listed only in CITES Appendix II.

 Searchable List of Names in the Lichen Family Parmeliaceae (Lichens), Botany, Smithsonian Institution.
As part of a modern trend in lichen systematics, Hale personally named twenty new genera of parmelioid lichens in an attempt to create smaller natural groups out of the confusing Parmelia s.
The large number of new genera and species that he and his colleagues recognized over fifteen years (1974-1989) were even confusing for specialists, so Hale produced an electronic database that allowed him to quickly look-up the accepted genus for a given epithet.
On 10 June 1989, Hale distributed a printed "List of Epithets in the Parmelioid Genera" produced from that database, with an accompanying letter, to many of his lichenological colleagues.

 II. Variation under Nature. Species of the Larger Genera in Each Country Vary More Frequently Than the Species of the ...
Moreover, the species of the large genera which present any varieties, invariably present a larger average number of varieties than do the species of the small genera.
Both these results follow when another division is made, and when all the least genera, with from only one to four species, are altogether excluded from the tables.
And this certainly holds true, if varieties be looked at as incipient species; for my tables clearly show as a general rule that, wherever many species of a genus have been formed, the species of that genus present a number of varieties, that is of incipient species, beyond the average.

Genus (plural: genera) is a major category invented in the mid-1750s by the botanist Carolus Linnaeus (or Karl von Linne) for his system of classifying nature.
Genera not presently considered to be dinosaurs (that is, those flagged with asterisks in their listings), are sorted into their own category and are not further subdivided.

I estimate on the order of 50,000 dinosaur genera and up to half a million individual species populated the Mesozoic from the Middle Triassic through the end of the Cretaceous, a period of time longer than 160 million years.
Altogether, I estimate several thousand dinosaur genera were alive at any one time during the Mesozoic (but only about a hundred or two of the big dinosaurs), which is entirely in line with estimates for extant mammals, birds, and reptiles.
