species A group of organisms that are very closely related.
genus A group that includes similar species.
domain The largest difference among organisms: Archaea, Bacteria, & Eukarya are the three domains.
Bacteria Made up of prokaryotes(no nucleus) that usually have a cell wall and reproduce by cell division. Unicellular and known as "new" bacteria.
Archaea Made up of prokaryotes(no nucleus)but the difference from bacteria is that it can live in harsh "extreme" environments. Known as the "old" bacteria.
Eukarya Made up all eukaryote (nucleus).
Animalia Multicellular organisms with no cell wall and most are able to move. They also have sensory organisms. Heterotrophs. We are part of this kingdom.
Plantae Multicellular organisms with cell wall and it cannot move. They also make their own food, autotrophs which use the process of photosynthesis.
Protista Eukaryotes. Single cell or simple multicellular organisms. Plant-like, animal-like and fungus like characteristis. Scientist sometimes call this group the mix and match kingdom. Examplea sre amoebas, euglenas,and paramecium that live in pond water.
Fungi Heterotrophic: Gets energy by absorbing materials and have cell walls but no chloroplast. They can be single-celled or multicellular. This group includes yeasts, molds and mushroom.
dichotomous key Paired statements to identify organisms.
binomial nomenclature (scientific name) the two part naming system for living organisms where the first part is the genus and the second part is the species
classify grouping based on similar characteristics
invertebrate living organism without a backbone
vertebrate living organism with a backbone
prokaryote organism with no nucleus
eukaryotes organism with a nucleus
unicellular made of one cell
multicellular made of many cells
autotrophs organism that can make its own food
heterotroph organism that gets its food from other organisms (living things)
DNA, RNA & bones scientist group living things based on similar characteristics into six kingdoms
Levels from largest to smallest Domain Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family Genus Species
