taxonomic groups

Term Definition
cell the smallest unit of an organism that performs life functions
nucleus a structure found in Eukaryota cells that contain DNA and is responsible for controlling the activities of the celll
Eukaryota a cell containing a membrane -enclose nucleus
Prokaryotic a cell lacking a membrane – enclosed nucleus and organelles
unicellular an organism made up of one single cell
multi-cellular an organism made up of more than 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 name sand classifies organisms by their structure , function and relationship
domain the highest and largest rank of grouping organisms
Three groups : Archean , Bacteria , and Eukaryota
domain bacteria prototypical , single -celled organism that looks like a nucleus in it's cells
domain Archean prototypical , single- celled organism that lacks a nucleus in its cell and can live in extreme enviroments
domain Eukaryota organisms with cells that contain a nucleus
kingdom a taxonomic rank below domain 6 Groups : Animalia , Fungi , Plantae, Protista, Archaea , and Eubacteria
autotroph an organism that is able to make its own food; known as a producer in food chain
heterotroph an organism that cannot make its own food; known as a consumer in the food chain
asexual reproduction a method that reproduction that requires only ONE parent

cell theory states that all living organisms are made up of 1 or more cells; cells are the basic unit of life and all cells come from other cells
kingdom Archeabacteria unicellular , asexual,auto , and heterotroph prokaryotic organism that lives in extreme enviroments
kingdom Eubacteria unicellular , asexual , auto , and heterotroph , prokaryotic organisms that live in moderate enviroments
kingdom Proista uni- and multicellular sexual or asexual auto- and heterotrophic eukaryotic organisms that are microscopic
kingdom Fungi uni- and multicellular sexual or asexual , hetero -trophic
kingdom Plantae
kingdom Animilia
