2Kingdoms Bacteria are classified into two kingdoms: Eubacteria Archaebacteria
3Eubacteria Largest bacteria kingdom Very diverse Classified into smaller groups by:Cell shape and structureHow they obtain foodType of food they eatWastes they produceWhether they are aerobes or anaerobesHow they move
4Eubacteria Cyanobacteria Producers Produce oxygen as a waste product. Use carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight to make food.Produce oxygen as a waste product.This oxygen is used by other organisms.Contain chlorophyll and a blue pigment.May also be red, yellow, or black.Live in coloniesSource of food for other organisms in lakes, ponds, and oceans.
5Eubacteria Cyanobacteria Blooms When large amounts of nutrients enter the water, the number of cyanobacteria increase significantly, eventually forming a bloom.The organisms in the bloom use up the nutrients very quickly and the cyanobacteria die.Aerobic consumers feed on the dead cyanobacteria, using up the oxygen in the lake during the feeding process.Organisms such as fish die because of the decrease in oxygen.
6Eubacteria Consumer Eubacteria Grouped according to the thickness of the cell wall.Different groups will stain different colors and be affected differently by antibiotics.One unique organism within this group is Mycoplasma pneumoniae because it has no cell wall and can change shape.
7ArchaebacteriaDivided into groups based on where they live or how they get energy.
8Archaebacteria Salt-loving bacteria (halophiles) Live in salty environments, such as the Great Salt Lake.
9Archaebacteria Heat and acid loving bacteria (thermoacidophiles) Live in hot, acidic environments, such as hot pools and hydrothermal vents.
10Archaebacteria Methane producing bacteria (methanogens) Anaerobic Live in places like swamps and intestinesUse carbon dioxide for energy and produce methane as a waste product.
