what is taxon?

Dear Student,

Each category into which organisms are classified such as kingdom, phylum etc are called taxa.

Hope this clears your doubt,

A taxon is a group of (one or more) organisms, which a taxonomist adjudges to be a unit .Usually a taxon is given a name and a rank, although neither is a requirement.
