Binomial nomenclature is important because:

  • The binomials are simple, meaningful and precise.
  • They are standard since they do not change from place to place.
  • These names avoid confusion and uncertainty created by local or vernacular names. The organisms are known by the same name throughout the world.
  • The binomials are easy to understand and remember.
  • It indicates phylogeny (evolutionary history) of organisms.
  • It helps to understand inter-relationship between organisms.
