Give the scientific names of tiger, peacock, ant, neem, lotus, and potato?

Answer :

Tiger- Panthera tigris

Peacock- Pavo cristatus

Ant- Formicidae

Neem- Azadirachta indica

Lotus- Nelumbo nucifera

Potato- Solanum tuberosum

Additional information:

• The scientific name gives the benefit of correct identification. The local and common names of different species are different depending on locality, culture as well as language.

• For example; a tiger in Hindi is called bagh, in malayam it is katuva and in urdu it is cheetah.

• So if each one has to talk about tiger, in their own language, it will cause chaos and confusion.

• Hence, the scientific names clear this confusion.

• In whichever part of the world we go, a tiger’s scientific name will remain same that is Panthera tigris.
