prokaryotes
bacteria,blue-green algae

Vertebrates
animals with backbones that can be classified according to their feautures
7 of 13
types of vertebrates
bony fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals
8 of 13
bony fish
absorb oxygen through their gills & they have wet scales --> their body temperature varies according to surroundings --> bony fish reproduce via external fertilisation e.g they lay eggs
9 of 13
amphibians
usually have lungs BUT they can also absorb 02 through their moist skin--> body temperature rises with surroundings --> they lay eggs via external fertilisation
10 of 13
reptiles
have lungs and dry scales--> body temperature changes with surroundings--> internal fertilisation and they lay eggs
11 of 13
birds
-->lungs, feathers and beaks-->can mantain body temperature (HOMEOTHERMS)--> internal fertilisation and lay eggs
12 of 13
mammals
---> lungs and fur --> homeotherms--> internal fertilisation and give birth to live young (VIPAROUS)
