SIX KINGDOMS

Archaebacteria:
  • Unicellular organisms
  • Found in environments of hot boiling water and thermal vents with no oxygen or highly acid environments.
  • Absence of peptidoglycan from their cell walls
  • Prokaryotic
  • Methanogens-
    • live in absence of oxygen
    • obtain energy with CO2
    • produce methane as waste
  • Extreme Halophiles
    • some require salt content 10x greater then seawater.
  • Extreme Thermophiles
    • temp for most is between 60 and 80 degrees celsius

Eubacteria:
  • Unicellular organisms
  • Found everywhere!

ECOLI Protista

  • Heterogeneous unicellular, colonial, and multicellular
  • Contains organisms of plants, animals, or fungi
  • Major component of plankton
  • They need some kind of water based environment
  • Eukaryotic
  • Grouped onto 3 major groups:
    • Protozoa- ingest their food by phagocytosis
    • Algae- almost of of them have chlorophyll
    • Fungus- they absorb nutrients from their environment
