So I have trouble remembering the order of taxonomy for classification. i.e domain>kingdom>phylum>class>order>family>genus>species

I can never remember it, is there an good mnemonic to remember them? How do you guys remember it?


Have a look at Wikipedia > List of mnemonics#Biology.

  • Dear King Philip Came Over For Good Soup

  • Do Kings Play Chess On Fine Green Silk?

  • Dumb Kids Prefer Cheese Over Fried Green Spinach

  • Do Kindly Place Cover On Fresh Green Spring Vegetables

  • Donald Kills People Cause Other Friends Get Sad

Mnemonics are like soups; it is always better when homemade. For example, extending upon the last and inspired by @John's comment, here is a homemade mnemonic

  • Donald Kidnaps People's Children Causing Outlaw Foreigners Great Suffering

Enjoy the game!
