Domain Eukarya CLASSIFICATION AND TAXONONMY

Animalia

All animals are heterotrophs. I chose this picture because the deer is a heterotroph.

An organism that cannot fix carbon from inorganic sources is a cat.This cat is multicellular.

All animals are eukaryotic organisms.This bird is called a parrot.

Animals can move spontaneously and independently at some point in their lives.This butterfly was once a caterpillar.

Animals can be divided broadly into vertebrates and invertebrates.This puppy is a mammal because it can give milk.

The animal kingdom emerged as a clade within apoikozoa as the sister group to the choanoflagellates.This hippo looks harmless but can harm if you get in their territory.

Animals are eukaryotic and multicellular, which separates them from bacteria and most protists.This tiger is dangerous and wild.

All animals are motile,this owl lives in trees.

All animals have eukaryotic cells.This grasshopper can jump high.

Almost all animals undergo some form of sexual reproduction.They produce haploid gametes by meiosis.This horse can breed.

Kingdom plantae

Some plants are parasitic and have lost the ability to produce normal amounts of chlorophyll or to photosynthesize.

Plants are characterized by sexual reproduction and alternation of generations, although asexual reproduction is also common.

Chloroplasts contain chlorophylls a and b, which gives them their green color.

Plants are mainly multicellular.

Plants that produce grains, fruits and vegetables form humankind's basic foodstuffs, and have been domesticated for millennia.

Green plants provide most of the world's molecular oxygen,

The scientific study of plants is known as botany, a branch of biology.

The term is today generally limited to the green plants.

there are about 300–315 thousand species of plants, of which the great majority, some 260–290 thousand, are seed plants.

Fungi is any member of the group of eukaryotic organisms that includes microorganisms such as yeasts and molds, as well as the more familiar mushrooms.

A characteristic that places fungi in a different kingdom from plants, bacteria and some protists, is chitin in their cell walls.

Fungi are heterotrophs, they acquire their food by absorbing dissolved molecules, typically by secreting digestive enzymes into their environment.

Fungi do not photosynthesise.

Growth is their means of mobility, except for spores which may travel through the air or water.

Most fungi are inconspicuous because of the small size of their structures, and their cryptic lifestyles in soil or on dead matter.

Fungi include symbionts of plants, animals, or other fungi and also parasites.

They may become noticeable when fruiting, either as mushrooms or as molds. Fungi perform an essential role in the decomposition of organic matter and have fundamental roles in nutrient cycling and exchange in the environment.

Fungi have long been used as a direct source of human food, in the form of mushrooms and truffles.

Fungi have been used for the production of antibiotics, and, more recently, various enzymes produced by fungi are used industrially and in detergents.

informal term for any eukaryotic organism that is not an animal, plant or fungus.

protists do not form a natural group, or clade, but are often grouped together for convenience, like algae or invertebrates

composed of organisms which are unicellular or unicellular-colonial and which form no tissues.

Protoctista is applied to a biological kingdom which includes certain large multicellular eukaryotes

In cladistic systems, there are no equivalents to the taxa Protista or Protoctista,

the protists make up a kingdom called Protista.

the term “protists” is now considered to mean similar-appearing but diverse taxa that are not related through an exclusive common ancestor.

have different life cycles, trophic levels, modes of locomotion, and cellular structures.

to encompass both microbial eukaryotes and macroscopic organisms that do not fit into the other traditional kingdoms.

there are no equivalents to the taxa Protista or Protoctista, both terms referring to a paraphyletic group which spans the entire eukaryotic tree of life.
