2Kingdoms and Domains There are six Kingdoms Animal Plant Fungi Protist ArchaebacteriaEubacteria
3Eubacteria Prokaryotic Have cell wall No chloroplast or mitochondria Unicellular microorganismsSome autotrophic others photosyntheticEx. Streptococcus, E. Coli
4Archaea Prokaryote Cell wall No organelles Unicellular Autotrophs-ChemosynthesisLive in hot springs and thermal ventsMostly found in very extreme environmentsMay have been the first form of life on Earth
5Eukarya Eukaryotic Some have cell wall Protists “catch-all” groupCan not be classified as plant, animal or fungiMostly single celled organismsSome are heterotrophic, others are autotrophic (photosynthetic)EukaryoticSome have cell wallAll have mitochondria – some chloroplast.Most unicellular some multicellularAutotroph or heterotrophEx. Euglena, ameba, paramecium
6Fungi Eukaryotes Cell wall made of chitin Has mitochondria Unicellular or MulticellularHeterotrophicObtains nutrients from dead or decaying matterExamples: Yeast, molds, mushrooms
