The different structures and characteristics among organisms make it possible for them to survive and reproduce in every place on Earth. Living organisms are found on every type of land, deep in the oceans and high in Earth’s atmosphere. Known Species on Earth Levels of Classification Biologists classify every organism into seven different levels - kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus and species. Each level contains organisms with similar characteristics. The Kingdom is the largest group and the most diverse. Organisms in this group share the least number of characteristics with each other. Notice that as you move to the lower levels of classification, the number of organisms decreases. The species is the smallest group. Organisms in this group share more characteristics with each other. Only organisms within a species are able to mate and produce fertile offspring. This chart traces the classification of a grizzly bear through each of the seven levels of classification.
