  • classification
    • Groups
      • kingdom
        • there are five kingdoms
          • Plants
            • multicellular
            • autotrophs (they make their own food)
            • have chlorophyll
            • have a cell wall
          • animals
            • multicellular
            • hetrotrophs (they have to move about to find thing to eat)
            • Don't have a cell wall!!
            • Have NO chlorophyll
          • fungi
            • saprophytes (they feed off dead organisms)
            • multicellular
            • have a cell wall
            • have NO chlorophyll
          • proctoctists
            • are unicellular (have only one cell)
            • have a nuclus
          • prokaryotes
            • unicellular
            • have no nuclus
      • phylum
        • animals in the phylum chordata all have a supporting rod up the back of their body
          • e.g. the backbone in vertebrates
      • class
      • order
      • family
      • genus
      • species
    • vertebrates
      • vertebrates are split up into groups
        • mammals
          • lungs
          • internal fertilisation
          • give birth to live young
          • homeotherm (warm blooded
        • fish
          • have gills
          • poikilothermic (cold blooded)
          • outside fertilisation
          • lay eggs
        • amphibians
          • skin
          • external fertilisation
          • oviparous (lay eggs)
          • poikilothermic(cold blooded)
        • birds
          • lungs
          • internal fertilisation
          • lay eggs
        • reptiles
          • lungs
          • internal fertilisation
          • oviparous (lay eggs)
          • poikilothermic(cold blooded)
        • they are based on 4 things
          • the way they take in oxygen
          • they way they control their body temperature
          • how they reproduce
          • how they give birth
  • hetrotrophs (they have to move about to find thing to eat)
  • lay eggs
