    can we have Periodic Table of all species (we have one for chemical elements)
    like we can predict any new element scientifically on the basis of this periodic table can we predict about new and probable species . i am curious. and where will you put human being.
    and what will be included?
    atomic number vs DNA
    atomic mass vs cell structure etc

    (some analogies)
    so anybody interested to construct new periodic table?

    @mods: you can trash my this thread.

    There are already classification tables for animal species (Phylogenetic tree of life). Organism DNA is much more diverse than an atomic number/atomic mass, to list that in a chart would be futile. Humans would be in the place of Carbon, as we intrude on all sorts of other species...

    You could certainly adopt a phylogenetic table or diagram of some sort. I suppose if you included some measure of degree of difference from adjacent species you might be able to predict missing species in the diagram and go and look for them as fossils. However I do not think it would be periodic. The periodicity of the Periodic Table results from filling atomic shells and subshells with electrons, according to the AufbauPrinzip. To my knowledge there is no simple pattern like this among organisms.

    Not to be confused with the Oddball principle that states : Shells are filled with paint, scares the hell out of the Germans. . I also think a periodic table would be inferior to the Phylogenetic table in that a periodic table would be less effective at conveying the branching out of species.
