Question:How can I differentiate between the 5 kingdoms- Animal plant protista fungi monera I could say single cell prokaryotes for monera and eukaryotic single cells for protista etc. What are some good ways to know the kingdoms by? Thanks! I have a test and classification is just one part of it so I want some easy rules to remember...

Answers:Animal- Eukaryotic, multicellular, no cell walls (think about us) Plants- Eukaryotic, autotrophic, cell walls, multicellular Fungi- Eukaryotic, heterotrophic, cell walls, most multicellular Protist- Eukaryotic, cell walls, mostly unicellular Monera- prokaryotic Remember that plants are the only autotrophic multicellular organisms, animals are the only ones without cell walls, fungi are heterotrophic, have cell walls, and are multicellular, and protist have cell walls but are unicellular.

Question:My Microbiology wants us to know the answer to this question except I can not find it in my book! I know what the 5 kingdoms are, I just need to know what the system is for, and what are the reasons for doing it. thanks in advance for your help!!!!!

Answers:The five kingdom classification system is a part of taxonomy- the subfield of biology that studies the relationships of living things. Originally taxonomy was just a listing system to give each species a unique name but after evolution began to be broadly understood, biologists realized that it could be used to group organisms into relatedness order as well. Things that had more homologous features are more closely related. To a certain extent taxonomy is still concerned with assigning newly discovered organisms a proper name but that is a minor focus compared to the identifying appropriate relationships. This has led to new tools and levels of classification. For example, the five kingdom model has been largely replaced by the 3 domain model. Also taxonomy is developing newer methods referred to as cladistics which includes more molecular and genome sequence data as well as physical features.

Question:I have to do a chart about certain types of cells, and I've finished most of it. I'm still unsure about a couple things though. 1. Algae are unicellular and multicellular right? Same with protozoans? And fungus-like protists are unicellular...? 2. Do most eukaryote cells contain: cell membrane, cytoplasm, nucleolus, rough/smooth endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, lysosomes, peroxisomes, cytoskeletons and vacuoles? Is there any group (plant, animal, and fungus-like protists, fungi, plants, and animals) that don't have at least one of those characteristics? 3. Which types of protists (animal, plant, fungi like) have centrioles? Cilia? Flagella? Plasmodesmata? Gap Junction? 4. What features do fungi have of the structures from the third question? 5. Do plant and animal cells have flagella? Sorry if it seems like a lot. It's kinda hard to find these kinds of things on the Internet.

Answers:a month ago i wud have known all this but it is school holidays and my brain is gone all i can answer with confidence is the last one. animal cells have a flagellum which is for movement.

Question:I think my book wants 1. Bacteria and archea were group together under the same kingdom 2. eukaryotes and protozoans were placed under the same kingdom

Answers:Under the 5 kingdom system, archaebacteria and eubacteria were both grouped under the same kingdom, called Monera. Archaebacteria have different lipids and lack peptidoglycan in their cell membranes, which prompting the splitting of Monera into two kingdoms. Protozoans are eukaryotes, so I see no problem with that. Protozoan usually refers to a protist, which had its own kingdom under the 5 kingdom system. However, there is a problem with the kingdom protista, both under the 5 kingdom system and today's 6. Protista is basically the kingdom that contains anything that isn't classified as an animal, plany, fungi, or bacteria. It is a highly diverse group, and many of the organisms in it have very little relation to each other. Some protists are unicellular, others are multicellular, some are autotrophic, others are heterotrophic...you get the picture.
