FC: THE | SIX | KINGDOMS
1: VIRUS | Viruses are not alive because they are not true cells and cannot reproduce without a host cell They are composed of a nucleic acid core and a protein coat called the capsid
2: Archaebacteria: Prokaryotes; unicellular; autotrophs | Archaebacteria live in three type of harsh extreme environments: very salty, oxygen free and very acidic.
3: Eubacteria: true bacteria Prokaryotes; unicellular; autotrophs or heterotrophs | Eubacteria can be found anywhere on earth except for harsh extreme environments. they are responsible for the majority of recycling by decomposition
4: Protista: eukarytote; mostly unicellular; heiterotrophs and autotrophs; some have cell walls | The Protist kingdom is the most diverse of all six kingdoms. It contains members that are animal-like, plant-like and fungus-like.
5: FUNGI: eukaryote; mostly multicellular; heterotrophs; have cell walls | The fungus kingdom contains cell walls made of a carbohydrate called chitin. They, along with bacteria, provide decomposition for many ecosystems.
6: Plants: eukaryotes; multicellular; autotrophs; have cell walls | Plant cell walls are made of cellulose and lignin. These two substances mae plants extremely strong. They are important to other organisms because of their ability to do photosynthesis
7: Animalia: eukaryotes; multicellular; hetertrophs; no cell walls | Animals include many species and most of them are insects
