  Rank (zoology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In zoology, a taxon is usually assigned to a rank in a hierarchy.
In practise, additional ranks such as species group, species subgroup, and species complex are sometimes added as extra, but unofficial, ranks between the subgenus and super species levels in taxa with many species (e.g.
a subspecies (a taxon at the rank of subspecies) gets a name composed of three names (a trinominal name or trinomen ;: generic name + specific name + subspecific name).

Once named, a taxon will usually have a rank and can be placed at a particular level in a hierarchy.
A prefix is used to indicate a ranking of lesser importance.
The use of ranks is challenged by users of cladistics and has led to the PhyloCode being proposed.

the principle that within the family group, genus group or species group a name established for a taxon at any rank in the group is deemed to be simultaneously established with the same author and date for taxa based on the same name-bearing type at other ranks in the group [Articles 36, 43, 46].

Of a genus-group name: a grammatical property (masculine, feminine or neuter) that affects the way in which Latin or latinized adjectival or participial species-group names are to be spelled, since the gender form of such a species-group name must agree with the gender of the generic name with which it is combined.
The principle that within the family group, genus group or species group a name established for a taxon at any rank in the group is deemed to be simultaneously established with the same author and date for taxa based on the same name-bearing type at other ranks in the group [Arts.
The ranks of the family group, the genus group, and the species group at which nominal taxa may be established are stated in Articles 10.3, 10.4, 35.1, 42.1 and 45.1.

 General trends (from zoology) --  Encyclopædia Britannica
Zoology has become animal biology—that is, the life sciences display a new unity, one that is founded on the common basis of all life, on the gene pool–species organization of organisms, and on the obligatory interacting of the components of ecosystems.
It includes both the inquiry into individual animals and their constituent parts, even to the molecular level, and the inquiry into animal populations, entire faunas, and the relationships of animals to each other, to plants, and to the nonliving environment.
The word zoo is from the Greek word zoion, which means “animal.” Zoology is the science of animals as botany is the science of plants.

 IN MEMORIAM: DONALD S. FARNER
He retired in 1985 with the rank of Emeritus Professor of Zoology, but re- mained active professionally until shortly be- fore his death three years later.
During his 15 years as Chair- man of the Department of Zoology at the Uni- versity of Washington, the department grew to first-rank stature, owing in no small part to Far- ner's astute appraisals of people and his powers of persuasion.
His editorial work is best known, however, for what might be called "cre- ative editing." This entailed not only the or- ganization of many timely symposia and the redaction of their proceedings, but also the launching of much larger works.

He began his career in 1916 with the rank of Class Assistant and was assigned full responsibility for a lecture and laboratory course in neurology while still a fourth-year undergraduate in Honour Biology.
When a student asked him a question about the location of some anatomical feature of the rabbit, his invariable answer was, “Have you luked in the buke?” The “buke,” of course, was his latest revision of Bensley’s classic.
Later I learned that during that period he was editor of the Canadian Journal of Zoology and editor of Section V of the Royal Society of Canada.

Such rankings have a name, "the Great Chain of Being" or "the Ladder of Life".

The fact that the two sentences mean very different things indicates that punctuation is not just there as a guide to how a phrase should sound; it is also semantic — it carries meaning.
The effect is the consequence of an action; the affect is its emotional reception.
