A scientific discipline concerned with naming and classifying the diverse forms of life.
A taxonomic naming system in which each species is given two names (a genus name followed by a species name)

a group of one or more populations of an organism seen by taxonomists to form a unit
a taxonomic group containing one or more genera
a taxonomic group containing one or more families
a taxonomic group containing one or more orders
a taxonomic group made up of one or more classes
a taxonomic group higher than phylum but lower than domain.
a taxonomic category above the kingdom level. The three domains are Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya.
Domain of a large group of prokaryotic unicellular microorganisms lacking organelles and an organized nucleus, including some that can cause disease.
Kingdom of bacteria with thick, rigid cell walls made of peptidoglycan and not typically found in harsh environments.
Kingdom of microorganisms whose cell walls do not contain peptidoglycan and that typically live in extremely harsh environments.
Domain of all organisms whose cells have nuclei, including members of the Kingdoms protista, plantae, fungi, and animalia
Kingdom composed of multiculluar and unicellular eukaryotes that are not classified as plants, animals, or fungi. They can be autotrophic or heterotrophic.
A kingdom made up of nongreen, eukaryotic organisms that have no means of movement, reproduce by using spores, and get food by breaking down substances in their surroundings and absorbing the nutrients
A kingdom made up of complex, multicellular organisms that are usually green, have cell walls made of cellulose, cannot move around, and use the sun's energy to make sugar by photosynthesis.
A kingdom made up of complex, multicellular organisms that lack cell walls, can usually move around, and quickly respond to their environment.
a domain of prokaryotes which live in extreme environments; types are thermophiles (heat lovers), extremophiles (extreme condition lovers), and halophiles (salt lovers)
