Ch. 9 Classification

Ch. 9 Classification and Kingdoms

Classification The division of organisms into groups, or classes, based on specific characteristics
Taxonomy the science of describing, naming, and classifying organisms
Genus The first part of the scientific name, begins with a capital letter
Species The second part of the scientific name, begins with a lower case letter- any organism that can mate and produce fertile offspring
Binomial nomenclature Two part name, genus and species
Taxonomic/Dichotomous Key Give two pairs of statements to identify an organism
Six Kingdoms Archaebacteria, Eubacteria, Protista, Fungi, Plantae, Animalia
Archaebacteria Unicellular, Prokaryote, Autotrophic, Heterotropic, Asexual, Sexual-conjugation, found in extreme environments
Bacteria/Eubacteria Unicellular, Prokaryote, Autotrophic, Heterotropic, Asexual, Sexual-conjugation, examples are strep, E. Coli, Salmonella
Protists- plant, animal, fungus like Mostly unicellular, multicellular (some form colonies), Eukaryote, Hetrotrophic, Asexual and sexual, examples are amoeba, alge, protozans
Fungi unicellular, multicellular (mostly), eukaryote, hetrotrophic, asexual (budding) sexual (spores), examples are molds, mildew, yeast
Plants multicellular, eukaryote, autrotrophic, Repoduction is Sporophyte and Gametophytes, examples are Novascular, Vascular, Flowering, Cone Bearing
Animals Multicellular, Eukaryote, Hetrotrophic, most sexual (internal and external) some asexual, examples are vertebrates and invertebrates
What are the 3 Domains Archaea, Bacteria, Eukarya
Archaea Domain prokaryotes (most of which are known to live in extreme environments) that are distinguished from other prokaryotes by differences in their genetics and in the makeup of their cell wall;
Bacteria Domain extremely small, single-celled organisms that usually have a cell wall and that usually reproduce by cell division (singular, bacterium)
Eukarya Domain in a modern taxonomic system, a domain made up of all eukaryotes; this domain aligns with the traditional kingdoms Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia
What are the 8 classification levels? Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species
