1 Six-Kingdom Classification

2 Classification  Aristotle first classified organisms as either plants or animals…. This was good until…  There are forms of life that do not fit into those categories!!!  Currently, we use the six-Kingdom classification system..  *** use to be 5, but we separated Eubacteria and Archaebacteria…Why?

3 The Six Kingdoms  Archaebacteria  Eubacteria  Protista  Fungi  Plantae  Animalia

4 Archaebacteria  Unicellular prokaryotes.  Do not have a nucleus  Live in Harsh environments.  Reproduce Binary Fission

5 Eubacteria  Unicellular Prokaryotes  Do not have a nucleus  The bacteria around us  Can be good and bad…how???  Reproduce Binary Fission

6 Protista  Most are unicellular eukaryotic  Can be heterotrophic or autotrophic  This is the place to put all Eukaryotes that are not plants, animals, or fungi.  Not necessarily related, but unsure where to place them

7 Fungi  Multicellular Eukaryotic  Heterotrophic…decomposers  Over 100,000 species of fungi including fungi, mushrooms, mildews, molds.

8 Plantae  Multicellular eukaryotic  Autotrophic (can make their own food…Photosythesis)  Examples include mosses, ferns, conifers, and flowering plants.

9 Animalia  Multicellular Eukaryotic  Heterotrophic  Most animals have symmetric body organization and move about in their environment  Examples: Birds, insects, worms, mammals, reptiles, and humans
