Postby kandarp shah » Sun Jun 05, 2005 9:19 pm

hi guys!!!!!!!11 :D
i have just strated my ADVANCE PLACEMENT BIOLOGY, so for the beging i am start running through the FIVE KINGDOM.
and in my book it says that monera has the circular chromosomes.i do not want to confuse at any point so canany body tell me specific about that WHAT IS CIRCULAR CHROMOSOMES in the kingdom of monera??????? and any body can give me some web sites that simplifies the basic biology about organisms......???? :?:
and if any body who has AP BIOLOGY high school can explain me how do i prepare fpr that.

i would be truly appreciated your help. :P
thanks in advance.

Circular chromosome

Five kingdoms?wow..... :shock:
I can think that circular chromosomes is the structure that kinda like the circle one. It's different from eukaryota cells because eukaryota cells have an "X" shape chromosomes.

GAH!?! No, eukaryotes DO NOT have X-shaped chromosomes...thats only during cell division. Normally they look like a big (3d) plate of spaghetti inside the nucleus with chromosomes being linear. Monera has the circular chromosomes...kinda handy since it cuts down on all the telomere silliness.

Circular chromosome? Easy: it's about the shape: they don't have linear chromosomes, they are circular.
By the way: aacording to the latest clasification there are 6 kingdomes

Archebacteria
Eubacteria
Protista
Fungi
Anamalia
Plantae

Yup, 6....

Would they be classified as Coccus if there attributes reflect a more round, spherical shape? Or is that just term unique to other forms?

Coccus is a general term used for bacteria with spherical shape

I'd suggest looking at the tutorials on this website and if that doesn't cover enough, look up biology at sparknotes.com

hmm...different (or maybe just the words)

Postby victor » Tue Jun 07, 2005 7:09 am

Um, my six kingdoms are different (or maybe just the words):
-Monera
-Protist
-Fungi
-Plantae
-Animalia and
-Virus

Is Archaebacteria is the same type as virus?or monera?

nope, archaebacteria are extremophiles...living in highly salty, hot/cold...extreme environments. Virii aren't alive. More discusion on that if you search the forum.

I should inform my proffessors about the kingdoms. :)

The ones they teach is: Monera,Protista,Fungi,Plantae,Animalia.
Maybe they classify all the bacteria in one kingdom.

Yeah, monera was split into eubacteria(new) and archaeobacteria(old). I guess they found the genes diverged too much.

Pretty soon they'll have to do something about protist too. Right now it's just for putting things that don't belong elsewhere.
