  • Living Organisms
    • Animals
      • Key Features: Multicellular, do not contain chloroplasts, no photosynthesis, feeding, no cell walls, have nervous system, carbohydrate stored as glycogen
    • Fungi
      • Key features: no photosynthesis, thread like structures called HYPHAE, feed by secreting enzymes, saprotrophic nutrition, store carbohydrate as glycogen, single celled, eg - MUCOR
    • Bacteria
      • Key Features: microscopic single celled, no nucleus but have DNA, photosynthesis, feed off living or dead organisms, eg - Pneumococcus and E.coli
    • Protoctista
      • Key Features: single celled, some are like animal cells, some cause disease - eg - Plasmodium, causes malaria
    • Viruses
      • Key features: smaller than bacteria, reproduce inside living cells, not made of cells, have protein coat, surrounds genetic material, eg - influenza virus, HIV
    • PATHOGENS
      • are micro-organisms that cause disease - fungi, bacteria, viruses or protoctista
  • Plants

  • Key Features: Multicellular, contain chloroplasts, walls made of cellulose, carbohydrate stored as starch, store and transport carbohydrate in sucrose form
    • Plants
