The two parts in scientific names are the genus and the specific epithet or species name.The genus and species are the last two classification in the Linnaeus hierarchy.

There are certain rules on writing and typing the scientific names.Some of them_:

-The genus name can be written alone to designate all species on that genus.

i.e:Zea-describes all tall annual grass with separate female and male flowers

-The species name however cannot be written alone and must follow the full genus name.

i.e:Zea mays or Z. mays (corn)

-In printing,the scientific names must be in Italics.

i.e:Homo sapiens

-In writing,the scientific names must be underlined separately.
