Six Kingdoms. Key terms. Autotrophic – Producer -makes its own food Heterotrophic – Consumer -can’t make its own food – consumes other organisms Unicellular – one cell Multicellular – many cells Prokaryote – has no nucleus or membrane bound organelles Eukaryote – has nucleus and organelles. - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

Six Kingdoms

Key termsAutotrophic Producer -makes its own foodHeterotrophic Consumer -cant make its own food consumes other organismsUnicellular one cellMulticellular many cellsProkaryote has no nucleus or membrane bound organellesEukaryote has nucleus and organelles3Kingdom Animalia (Animals)MulticellularHeterotrophs consume food Feeds on plants or animalsMovesEukaryoticNo cell walls


Kingdom Plantae (Plants)

MulticellularAutotrophicPhotosynthesisCell walls made of celluloseEukaryote

4Growth, with increases in size and number of cells, is part of development.Development involves many stages from conception until death.

5Kingdom FungiMulticellular, except yeastAbsorptive heterotrophs (digest food outside their body and then absorb it)Cell walls made of chitinCant moveDecomposersEukaryote


yeastGiant puffballs range from golf ball size to as large as a watermelon

67Kingdom Protista (Protist)

Unicellular (most) and multicellularFood: autotrophic or heteroprophic (euglena does both)MovesEukaryotesSome have cell walls w/cellulose - some dont have cell walls7


Eubacteria, some of which cause human diseases, are present in almost all habitats on earth.UnicellularProkaryotesome heterotropic decomposers some autotophicsome moveCell walls w/peptidoglycan

Many bacteria are important environmentally and commercially. Kingdom Eubacteria9


Archaeabacteria live in harsh environments and may represent the first cells to have evolved.Some get energy through chemosynthesisCell walls without pepidoglycan ProkaryoteUnicellular

Kingdom Archeabacteria1112

Archaeabacteria in Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vent Environments use chemosynthesis to obtain energy. 1213 Finding Archaeabacteria : The hot springs of Yellowstone National Park, USA, were among the first places Archaea were discovered. The coloring comes from the massive amount of archaebacteria (which are chemo-synthesizers)

1314Archaebacteria In 1983, scientists took samples from a spot deep in the Pacific Ocean where hot gases and molten rock boiled into the ocean form the Earths interior. To their surprise they discovered unicellular (one cell) organisms in the samples. These organisms are today classified in the kingdom, Archaebacteria.
