Prokaryotic a cell lacking a nucleus or any other member-enclosed organelles
unicellular an organism made up of one single cell
multicellular an organism made up of one or more that one cell, and often made up of different types of cells
classification the process of grouping things based on similarities
taxonomy the branch of science that formally names and classifies organisms by their structure, function and relationships
Domain the highest and largest rank of grouping organisms three groups: Archean, Bacteria and Eukaryota
