                     Domains and Kingdoms

       There are three domains, Eukarya/Eukaryota, Eubacteria/Bacteria, and Archea. In each domain there is at least one kingdom and there is six kingdoms total.

Below are the characteristcs used to classify a cell's domain and/or kingdom.

      Unicellular organisms are composed of only one cell. Multicellular organisms are composed of more than one cell.

       Prokaryotic cells are have no nucleus(PRO=NO). Eukaryotic cells have a nucleus(EU=TRUE)

       Sexual reproduction requires a male and female to mate, while asexual reproduction only requires a piece to break off,or grow off of the original organism.

      Heterotrophic organisms rely on other organisms to produce their food, supplying them with nutrients and energy, which is essential. Meanwhile Autotrophs make their own food and energy to live on.

domain: Archaea

Archea: means ancient organisms

kingdom(s): Archea



*autotrophic & heterotrophic


*adapts to extreme environments

Ex. Archea, halofile, thermofile

Interesting Fact: Archea is not known to cause disease in humans


eubacteria: means true bacteria

kingdom(s): eubacteria



*autotrophic & heterotrophic


*found everywhere

Ex.bacteria, germs

Interesting Fact:can reproduce up to 10 million times in 24 hours

Eukarya/ Eukaryota

Unlike the two other domains Archea and Eubacteria,which both only have one kingdom Eukarya/Eukaryota has four kingdoms: Protoctista, Plantae, Fungi, and Animalia



protoctista: means first/most primitive organisms

*unicellular/sometimes multi


*autotrophic & heterotrophic

*asexual and sexual

*found in tree trunks and other organisms

Ex. algae, slime molds

Interesting Fact: protoctists have flagellas


plantae: means plant kingdom




*asexual and sexual

*found in soil

Ex. Trees, Flowers, Bushes, etc.

Interesting fact: there is estimated to be over 8.7 million different plant types in the world


*fungi:plural of fungus, possibly originates from sphongos (Greek)

*mainly multicellular



*asexual and sexual

*found in freshwater, seawater, on plants and animals,and in dry and acidic places

Ex. molds, yeasts, and mushrooms

Interesting Fact: The fungi kingdom is more similar to the animal kingdom than the pant kingdom.


Animalia: means breath,life,spirit (Latin)





*Ex. zebra, human, chicken

Interesting fact: about ninety-two percent of the animalia kingdom are invertebrates,or have no backbone
