2: Archaea Archaea are extremely similar to bacteria. They live in very salty bodies of water and underwater thermal springs. These environments are like those of ancient earth. Archaea are single celled prokaryotic
4: Bacteria Bacteria are another domain. they are unicellular and prokaryotes. Bacteria can have positive and negative effects on other organisms.
6: Eukarya Eukarya is the third and final domain. the difference between eukaryotes and prokaryotes (archaea and bacteria) is that eukaryotic cells have their genetic material all in one place. Prokaryotic cells have it all around inside the cell.
10: Monerans Monerans are single celled prokaryotic organisms. They receive their required nutrients when they pass through their cell membrane. They reproduce by splitting in two.
12: Protists Protists are usually single celled. They have a nucleus and some get their nutrients by consuming other organisms, while others get their nutrients from the sun. They reproduce by dividing into two.
14: Fungi Fungi are usually multi celled. They get their necessary nutrients by absorbing them from the surfaces they live on. They reproduce with spores. mushrooms, lichen, mold, and yeasts are members of the Fungi kingdom.
16: PLantae Plants are multi cellular organisms.They receive their nutrients and energy from their surroundings. Many reproduce through seeds.
18: Animalia Animals are multi cellular organisms. They are heterotrophs which means they rely on other sources for their energy. They reproduce with cells which grow in or out of hte mother's body.
22: Fish Fish are cold blooded animals which live in the water. Most of them have gills instead of lungs for breathing, and most are scaled.
24: Amphibians Amphibians are cold blooded animals without scales. THey lay soft, jelly like eggs in the water. The young start out as larvae or tadpoles. The younger ones breathe with gills and the older ones with lungs. Some can breathe through their skin.
26: Reptiles Reptiles are cold blooded. They use lungs to breathe and their skins usually have scales or some sort of horny plates. They lay leathery like eggs on the land.
28: BIrds Birds are warm blooded, winged animals. They lay delicate eggs and they breathe with lungs. THey also have feathers on their skin.
30: Mammals Mammals are warm blooded animals. They nurse their young with milk and have hair on their fur. MOst give birth to live young. Mammals are divided into three groups. 1. Monotremes. They lay eggs. 2. Marsupials. They have pouches to carry their young in the period shortly after birth 3. Placental. In these mammals the fetus is on the wall of the uterus and gets its nourishment through the placenta, the spongy material around the uterus.
