1 of 24
What are these 5 groups called?
kingdoms
2 of 24
What are living organisms classified according to?
characteristics
3 of 24
What are the five kingdoms called?
protista, monera, fungi, plants, animals
4 of 24
what are the features of protista?
single-celled, have a nucleus, some have chloroplasts, no cell wall, organelles present
5 of 24
What are the features of monera?
single-celled, no nucleus, no chloroplasts, have a cell wall
6 of 24
What are the features of fungi?
multicellular, have a nucleus, no chloroplasts, have a cell wall
7 of 24
What are the features of plants?
multicellular, have a nucleus, chloroplasts and cell walls
8 of 24
What are the features of animals?
multicellular, have a nucleus, no chloroplasts, no cell wals
9 of 24
What is the feeding method of protista?
photosynthesis or ingestion of other organisms or both
10 of 24
What is the feeding method of monera?
absorb nutrients through cell wall, or produce their own
11 of 24
What is the feeding method of fungi?
acquire nutrients from decaying material
12 of 24
What is the feeding method of plants?
require sunlight to make food through photosynthesis
13 of 24
What is the feeding method of animals?
acquire nutrients by ingestion
14 of 24
How does protista move?
using cilia or flagella
15 of 24
How does monera move?
may or may not move
16 of 24
How does fungi move?
no mechanisms for movement
17 of 24
How does plants move?
most don't move
18 of 24
How does animals move?
using cilia, flagella or muscles
19 of 24
Why may the classification system need to be changed in the future?
as more species are found and new discoveries especially in genetics, are made.
20 of 24
What are hybirds?
when organisms from different species can mate and reproduce and give birth to a hybird.
21 of 24
Why can't hybirds be called a new species?
because they aren't fertile
22 of 24
What do evolutionary trees show?
evolutionary relationships between organisms in the kingdoms
23 of 24
What are representative of the earliest group of organisms?
monera
