2 Kingdoms and Domains There are six Kingdoms Animal Plant Fungi Protist ArchaebacteriaEubacteria
3 Eubacteria Prokaryotic Have cell wall No chloroplast or mitochondria Unicellular microorganismsSome autotrophic others photosyntheticEx. Streptococcus, E. Coli
4 Archaea 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
5 Eukarya 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
6 Fungi Eukaryotes Cell wall made of chitin Has mitochondria Unicellular or MulticellularHeterotrophicObtains nutrients from dead or decaying matterExamples: Yeast, molds, mushrooms
