How do certain organisms fall into the six kingdoms of life? The purpose of this lab was to categorize given organisms into the six categories of life. The six kingdoms are Archaea, Eubacteria, Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia. To be in the Archaea family, an organism must had prokaryotic cells, which are cells that lack a nucleus or other membrane. The organism must be multicellular, which is having more than one cell, and its highest level of organization is the cellular level. The organism must be either an autotroph or saprophytes, which are organisms that obtain energy from the sunlight and an organism that absorbs its own nutrients from dead or decaying matter, respectively. Their method of reproduction must be asexual, which is the process of making an organism without the union of gametes.…show more content…
Protista are quite different. Their cell type must be Eukaryotes, those are cells that have a nucleus or other membrane bound organelle. The highest level of organization is also the cellular level and they are also autotrophs. They can reproduce sexually, the process of uniting gametes to create a new organism, or asexauly. To belong in the Fungi family the organism must also have Eukaryotic cells, be multicellular, and its highest level of organization is the tissue level. They must be heterotrophs, they are unable to make their own food and must get it from another source. They can reproduce either asexualy or sexualy. Plantae must be eukaryotic, be multicellular, the highest level of organization is the organ system, they are autotrophs and reproduce sexualy. Animalia are the exact same but they are heterotrophs instead. The procedure for this lab was very simple, we got into groups then began our classification
