  Order (biology) - Wikivisual
In scientific classification used in biology, the order (Latin: ordo, plural ordines) is a rank between class and family (termed a taxon at that rank).
The order as a distinct rank of biological classification having its own distinctive name (and not just called a higher genus (genus summum)) was first introduced by a German botanist Augustus Quirinus Rivinus in his classification of plants (appeared in a series of treatises in the 1690s).
Lepidoptera for the order of moths and butterflies, or Diptera for the order of flies, mosquitoes, midges, and gnats).

Although the exact taxonomic classification of each order is often debated, there are some definite characteristics that differentiate each order from the others.

Caecilians, order Gymnophiona, or Apoda, are perhaps the least studied amphibians, and definitely the most alien form.

For example, the horse, rhinoceros, and tapir families are grouped in the order Perissodactyla, the odd-toed ungulates, because they all have either one or three toes on each foot.
The names of orders are not shown in italic (unlike genus and species names) and by convention they have the ending ‘-formes’ in birds and fish; ‘-a’ in mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and other animals; and ‘-ales’ in fungi and plants.
Related orders are grouped together in a class.

  Order - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Order (from Latin ordo "row, rank, series, arrangement", Old French ordre from the Latin accusative, ordinem, attested in English from the 1220s).
The word conveys a notion of "a system of parts subject to certain uniform, established ranks or proportions", an idea very central to scholastic thought, and it was used in a wide range of contexts, from architecture to angels.

 Biology
Biology is the natural science that studies the no-spontaneous transquantum transfer of the energy and the quasi-stable systems that experience it.
The Biology also investigate the environmental factors that surround the living beings; and, by means of conservationism, it seeks for more effective ways to understand the variations or new conditions of the environment that can threaten the existence of living beings on our planet.
The major order of the Universe -as a whole- in contrast with any of its components, is specified by the theory of the energy density of the Higgs’ fields.

 Scientific classification - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linnaeus is best known for his introduction of the method still used to formulate the scientific name of every species.
For example, the traditional classification of primates (class Mammalia — subclass Theria — infraclass Eutheria — order Primates) is challenged by new classifications such as McKenna and Bell (class Mammalia — subclass Theriformes — infraclass Holotheria — order Primates).
These differences arise because there are only a small number of ranks available and a large number of branching points in the fossil record.

 Human Biology: Birth order and its association with the onset of chronic fatigue syndrome
However, the birth order effect we found was due to relatively increased rates of CFS in second-born children; prior birth order studies of personality characteristics have found such effects to be skewed toward first-born children.
One suggestion to bypass this potential problem was to use an alternative reference population of birth order-that is, one based on the birth years of the sample CFS patients.
Comparisons of birth order for all CFS patients, sudden onset and gradual onset CFS groups, were examined, respectively, in regard to the U.S. reference population (see Table 1).

 20th WCP: Biological Teleology in Contemporary Science
Attempts to reinterpret Aristotle's biological thinking in order to show its pertinence to modern biological science, as well as the attempts in the opposite direction, that is to show how hopelessly obsolete it is, are as old as biology itself.
In fact, molecular biology is still widely considered as the biological discipline the most appropriate for reduction to physics and chemistry and for elimination of teleological language.
These points of view express two types of order that biology has always tried to establish in the living world and that have been unified on the level of molecular biology, after the discovery of the molecular mechanisms of heredity.

And religious advocates are successfully persuading school districts to mandate that biology classes teach something called "intelligent design," which claims there is scientific evidence to show that a "master intellect" — basically a deity — created humans.
Last fall, the Dover, Pa., school board decided to become the first school district in the country to order biology teachers to tell students about "intelligent design." The board also accepted 60 copies of the "intelligent design" textbook, "Of Pandas and People," from an anonymous donor and made them available to students.
Biology teachers in Dover are refusing to read students a statement discrediting evolution and proposing "intelligent design" as a viable explanation for the origin of life.

 About money order
A money order is a check issued by an organization such as the Postal Service or sold by third parties such as grocery stores, convenience stores, or banks and other financial services companies, to allow individuals to make payments to each other or to pay bills such as utilities and rent.
A money order is usually considered safer for payments from unknown parties as opposed to a personal check issued by the payer, since they are generally guaranteed cashable by the receiving party, unlike traditional checks.

In order to understand the structure of a society, an institution or a political conflict, one needs the approaches from the social sciences and the humanities, without the importation of theories or methods from physics and biology as has so frequently been tried in the name of positivism and scientism.
It can be argued however, that in order to make a theory more comprehensible, to understand its structure, and to make the relation between the theory and related subject matters intelligible, it is often of great value to construct and use analogies as well as to understand their limits (Leatherdale 1974).
In a review of 'the molecular biology that was', Gunther Stent calls attention to the differences between the structural and the informational school of molecular biology in their respective interests and conceptions of subject matter.
