Scientific Name definition: The name applied to a plant, animal, or other organism, according to the Codes of Nomenclature, consisting of a Genus and species.
Scientific Control definition: Methodology that tests integrity in experiments by isolating variables as dictated by the scientific method in order to make a conclusion about such variables.
