Biology Core classification

HideShow resource information
What are the 5 kingdoms?
Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Prokaryotae, Protoctista
1 of 25
What are the several further ranks before we reach a decision on a particular species?
Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. Note:Kevin Plays Carinet Or Flute - Grotty Sound!
2 of 25
What is Binomial classification?
formal system of naming species of living things by giving each a name composed of two parts, the Genus name and the
3 of 25
why is binomial classification important?
because it clearly identifies species, study and conserve species, target conservation efforts.
4 of 25
What are the characteristics of the kingdom: animalia?
multicellular, no cell wall or chlorophyll, heterotrophic feeders*all multicellular animals.
5 of 25
What are the characteristics of the kingdom: plantae?
Multicellular, have cell walls and chlorophyll, autotrophic feeders*all green plants.
6 of 25
What are the characteristics of the kingdom: Fungi?
Multicellular, have cell walls, dont have chlorophyll, saprophytic feeders
7 of 25
What are the characteristics of the kingdom: Protoctista?
Usually unicellular, with a nucleus
8 of 25
What are the characteristics of the kingdom: Prokaryotes?
Unicellular, with no nucleus
9 of 25
what is the classification name for humans?
**** Sapiens
10 of 25
What is the name of the single celled organism that is difficult to classify and why?
called Euglena, it has Chloroplasts like a plant, but no cell wall like an animal and a flagellum to swim like bacteria.
11 of 25
Why do scientists not classify Viruses as a living thing?
Because it does not show all seven processes of life, and when it enters a cell it changes the way a cell works so it can make copies of the virus.
12 of 25
what are vertebrates?
animals with a backbone
13 of 25
What features do scientists seperate the vertebrate group by into smaller groups?
how the animal takes in oxygen(gills, lungs, skin), thermoregulation (homotherm, or poikilotherms), reproduction (external/internal or oviparous/viviparous)
14 of 25
What does oviparous and Viviparous mean?
Oviparous:Lay eggs, viviparous:Give birth to live young
15 of 25
What does homeotherm or poikilotherm mean?
homeotherm:maintains own temp, poikilotherm:temp varies with surroundings
16 of 25
What are the 5 vertebrate groups?
Fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, mammal.
17 of 25
what are the characteristics of the vertebrate: fish?
gills, external fertilization, oviparous, poikilotherm.
18 of 25
what are the characteristics of the vertebrate:amphibian?
lungs/gills, external fertilisiation, oviparous, poikilotherm.
19 of 25
what are the characteristics of the vertebrate: reptiles?
lungs, external fertilisation, oviparous, poikilotherm.
20 of 25
what are the characteristics of the vertebrate: Bird?
Lungs, internal ferilisation, oviparous, homeotherm.
21 of 25
what are the characteristics of the vertebrate: mammal?
lungs, internal fertilisation, viviparous, homeotherm.
22 of 25
why is classification complicated sometimes?
Variety within a species, hybridisation, ring species.
23 of 25
what is hybridisation?
closely related species breed to produce offspring that have characteristics of both – the hybrids are often infertile
24 of 25
what is a ring species?
neighbouring populations of species may have slightly different characteristics but can still interbreed as part of a chain but the two ends of the chain can’t interbreed.
