Common features shared by organisms

HideShow resource information
Plants
Multicellular, have chloroplasts so can photosynthesise, cells walls made of cellulose, store carbohydrates as starch or sucrose
1 of 6
Animals
Multicellular, do not have chloroplasts, do not have cell walls, have a CNS, move around, store carbohydrates as glycogen
2 of 6
Fungi
Single celled, body called mycelium made up of hyphae, cannot photosynthesise, cell walls made of chitin, sapotrophic nutrition, store carbohydrates as glycogen
3 of 6
Protoctists
Single celled, microscopic, have chloroplasts and are like both animal and plant cells
4 of 6
Bacteria
Single celled, microscopic, no nucleus, circular chromosome of DNA, photosynthesise, feed off other organisms
5 of 6
Viruses
Particles not cells, smaller than bacteria, reproduce in living cells, called parasites, infect all types of living organisms, lots of different shapes and sizes, no cellular structure just a protein coat around some genetic material
