Monera small, simple single prokaryotic cell (nucleus is not enclosed by a membrane); some form chains or mats absorb food bacteria, blue-green algae, and spirochetes

Protista large, single eukaryotic cell (nucleus is enclosed by a membrane); some form chains or colonies absorb, ingest, and/or photosynthesize food protozoans and algae of various types

Fungi multicellular filamentous form with specialized eukaryotic cells absorb food funguses, molds, mushrooms, yeasts, mildews, and smuts

Plantae multicellular form with specialized eukaryotic cells; do not have their own means of locomotion photosynthesize food mosses, ferns, woody and non-woody flowering plants

Animalia multicellular form with specialized eukaryotic cells; have their own means of locomotion ingest food sponges, worms, insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals

Monera is divided into Eubacteria and Archea actually.. It's not one kingdom any more

No, six. Archaea, Eubacteria, Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia. The older list you described had only five kingdoms.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Monera is still used. :) It is a new division, some scientist still find it useless.

Monera is still used because not all teachers read Bergey's. even if they find it useless they should use since it is the current clasification, it's like saying protozoans are animals cause they used to be included into Animalia a few decades ago.

And i bet there are no microbiology professors who don't use the clasification

Splitters and Clumpers

Post by Doc44 » Thu Mar 09, 2006 12:16 am

two kingdoms

three kingdoms

five kingdoms

seven kingdoms

Some splitters even list eleven kingdoms or is that kingdae.........maybe now with the advent of DNA analysis there may be forty kingdoms identified.....or maybe just ONE. Is classification still based on structural characteristics?

I dont think there is any need of 6th kingdom as it is easily classified with 5 kingdoms taking eubacteria and archaebacteria in the kindom monera.

Cell walls/Membranes

Post by dontbepurple » Thu May 11, 2006 10:25 pm

Does anyone have any information on the types of cell walls/membranes that the members of the different kingdoms have?
