Organisms are split into different kingdoms bases on:
-Cell type (complex or simple)
- how they make food
- and the quantity of cells in their body

Archaebacteria:

-usually found in extreme conditions like:
- volcanic areas
- boiling water and hot springs
- they have a unicellular bodies
-they don;t need oxygen or light

Three divisions of archaebacteria:
Methanogens: creates methane methane
thermophiles: can live in volcanoes and sulfur springs
Halophiles: can only live in concentrated salt waters like the Dead Sea

-yeast for rising bread
- fermenting wines, beers, and vinegars
