Bacteria

Domain: Bacteria
Kingdom: Eubacteria
Cell Type: Prokaryote
Cell Structures: Cell walls WITH peptidoglycans
Number of Cells: unicellular
Mode of Nutrition: Autotroph or heterotroph
Example: Strep or E. coli

Archaea

Domain: Archaea
Kingdom: Archaebacteria
Cell Type: Prokaryote
Cell Structures: Cell walls WITHOUT peptidoglycans
Number of Cells: Unicellular
Mode of Nutrition: Autotroph or heterotroph
Example: Methanogens, Halophiles

Eukarya

Protista, Fungi, Plantae Animalia

Protista

Domain: Eukarya
Kingdom: Protista
Cell Type: Eukaryote
Cell Structures: Cell walls of CELLULOSE: some have chloroplasts
Number of Cells: Most unicellular, some colonial or multicellular
Mode of Nutrition: Autotroph or heterotroph
Example: AMOEBA, PARAMECIUM, MOLDS, GIANT KELP

Fungi

Domain: Eukarya
Kingdom: Fungi
Cell Type: Eukaryote
Cell Structures: Cell walls of CHITIN
Number of Cells: some unicellular,,MOST MULTICELLULAR
Mode of Nutrition: Heterotroph
Example: MUSHROOMS AND YEAST

Plantae

Domain: Eukaryote
Kingdom: Plantae
Cell Type: Eukaryote
Cell Structures: Cell walls with CELLULOSE; chloroplasts
Number of Cells: MULTICELLULAR
Mode of Nutrition: Autotroph
Example: Moss, ferns, and flowering plants

Animals

Domain: Eukaryotes
Kingdom: Animalia
Cell Type: Eukaryotes
Cell Structures: NO Cell walls and NO CHLOROPLASTS
Number of Cells: Multicellular
Mode of Nutrition: Heterotroph
Example: Sponges, worms, insects, fishes, mammals

No Cell walls and no chloroplasts and Heterotrophs
