The hierarchy of scientific classification

An order is a rank used in the biological taxonomy. Each order is split into families. There are many orders in each class. Order is "over" in the mnemonic King Phillip Came Over For Great Spaghetti.

Examples of orders

Some orders, such as the pigeons, have only one family.
