Prokaryotae
Unicellular, simple cell structure with no nucleus.
1 of 23
Protoctista
Mostly unicellular but a few are multicellular,complex cell with nucleus.
2 of 23
Fungi
Multicellular, cell wall not made of cellulose,saprophytic feeders so no chlorophyll,complex cell structure with nucleus.
3 of 23
Plantae
Multicellular, autotrophic feeders using chlorophyll,cell walls made of cellulose,complex cell structure with nucleus.
4 of 23
Animalia
Multicellular,hetrotrophic feeders so no chlorophyll, no cell wall, complex cell structure with nucleus.
5 of 23
Taxonomy
The 5 kingdoms to classify organisms.
6 of 23
Chordata
It is a phylum classification to say if it is a vertebrate.
7 of 23
Homeotherms (endotherms)
temperature controlled in surrounding temperature
8 of 23
poikilotherm (ectotherms)
don't maintain temperature so change temperature with surrounding temperature
9 of 23
Oviparus
animals that lay egg
10 of 23
Viviparous
give birth to young
11 of 23
Monotremata
It is an order which classifies mammals that lay eggs
12 of 23
Pellicle
The cell surface membrane which is covered in stiff coat in Euglena.
13 of 23
Nucleus
Something that contains are genetic information and controls the cell.
14 of 23
Fish
Are oviparous and poikilotherm. It is ectothermic and aquatic.Have gills to breathe underwater.Scaly skin and fins help to swim.External Fertilisation
15 of 23
Reptiles
Is oviparous and a poikilotherm (ectothermic).Have scales.Breathes with lungs.Internal fertilisation

21 of 23
Species
A group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of having offspring or interbreeding. Ranking below a genus.
22 of 23
Amphibian
Is oviparous and a poikilotherms(ectothermic). Have gills during childhood which develop into lungs.Moisten skin to breath(slimy). Has three chambered heart.External Fertilisation
