2 Current Version of the Hierarchy of Living Things Super kingdom is the broadest category and includes the prokaryotes and the eukaryotes.Prokaryotesmicroscopic unicellular organismsfew organellesno nucleus.Mostly photosynthesizers or decomposersSome are pathogensDisease-causingFurther divided into two kingdomsEubacteria and Archaebacteria
3 Current Version of the Hierarchy of Living Things EukaryotesUnicellular AND multicellularDivided into four kingdomsProtistaFungiPlantaeAnimalia
4 Kingdoms Divide Kingdom Phylum or divisions Classes Orders Family GenusSpecies
5 Current system of organization Carl LinnaeusBinomial nomenclatureA system of naming organisms using two-part names to label the speciesScientific nameGenus (generic)Species (specific)Homo sapiens is the scientific name for humans.
