Kingdoms & Domains!
Organisms in Domain Archaea are specialized group of unicellular prokaryotes. Scientists have discovered that these unique organisms live in areas of extreme conditions. Some are found in hot springs and are called thermophiles, also known as "heat loving". Others are found in very salty conditions and are called halophiles, also known as "salt loving". Similar to bacteria, Archaea reproduce asexually.
Archaea can be both autotrophs and heterotrophs.
In the 1970's, a study revealed that the cellular structures of archaea are so different from bacteria, they deserve their ow domains. For example, archaea have a unique plasmid membrane structure not found in any other organisms.
Next- Domain Bacteria
Domain Bacteria includes organisms commonly referred to as bacteria.
Bacteria are unicellular prokaryotes. They are very tiny organisms that reproduce asexually. They can be both auto/heterotrophs.
Extra Fact- They cannot live in extreme environments.
Next- Domain Eukarya
All living organisms-
Any organism that that is Eukaryotic. They can be heterotrophic and autotrophic.They can reproduce asexually or sexually.
Next Kingdom Archaea
The Archaea kingdom is made up of prokaryotic cells. They reproduce asexually. They are also both autotrophic and heterotrophic.
Next Eubacteria Kingdom
The Eubacteria Kingdom can be good or bad. The one at the top is a virus bacteria.The one bellow is a common bacteria. They reproduce asexually. They are both heterotrophic and autotrophic.
Next kingdom Animalia
The Kingdom Animalia is made op intierly of prokaryotic cells. They are only heterotrophic because animals eat other organisms. They can produce both asexually and sexually.
Next Kingdom Protista
The Kingdom Protista reproduce sexually or asexually. They are both heterotrophic and autotrophic.
Next Fungi Kingdom
The Kingdom Fungi are eukaryotic. They reproduce sexually or asexually. They are both heterotrophic and autotrophic.
Fun Fact- Fungi decompose almost all rotting material
Next Kingdom Plantea
The kingdom Plantea includes all plants. They can reproduce sexually or asexually. Very few plants are both heterotrphic and autotrophic but most of them are only autotrophic.
