The Five Kingdoms are called;-
- Animal Animal Kingdom:
- Plant Members include all types of animal.
- Protoctist (Protist) The features include;-
- Fungus - Multicellular eukaryote organisms
- Prokaryotes (bacteria). - No cell wall
- Nervous system
Prokaryote Kingdom: - And are heterotrophic
Members of this kingdom include bacteria
and blue-green algae. The animal kingdom is divided into over 20
The features include;- major and minor groups called phyla.
- unicellular Main groups are;-
- cell wall is made from murein - flatworms
- there are no membranous organelles - roundworms
or nuclear membrane. - moiluskes
- annelids
Protoctista Kingdom: - crustaceans
Members include the smaller eukaryotes - insects
such as algae, slime mould, water moulds - centipedes and millipedes
and protozoa. - spiders
The features include;- - mammals
- membranous organelles and nuclear - birds

- amphibians
This Kingdom encompasses organisms - fish
which are not grouped under animal, plant or - arthropods and vertebrates
fungi, however, they do have the
characteristics of these Kingdoms. Plant Kingdom:
Members include all types of plant, such as
