Transcripts - Kingdom monera

  • 1.  Oldest and most abundant organisms Prokaryotic (“before a nucleus”) Unicellular & Microscopic Undergo asexual reproduction Prokaryotes are single-celled organisms. They are the smallest, simplest organisms
  • 2.  Subkingdom Archaebacteria- differ fundamantally from eubacteria with respect to their metabolism and preference for exotic environments. -can live in the most extreme of environments.
  • 3.  Is also called the true bacteria Not classified accdg to shape as coccus, bacillus and spirillum but according to chemical composition of their cell walls and reaction to Gram stain
  • 4. These bacteria live in very hot, acid habitats of 60-80and pH 2-4, like the photo of a "Hot springs" below, thered stain on the rocks are the prokaryotic cells.
  • 5.  Eubacteria are more modern bacteria.  Inhabit nearly every known habitat  Consumers, producers, and decomposers  Some cause disease but most are harmless
  • 6.  They are found in nearly every habitat studied, including some that no other organism is able to withstand.
  • 7.  Bacteria have a cell wall, a cell membrane surrounds the cell but no membrane-bound organelles such as a nucleus, mitochondria, chloroplasts, Golgi apparatus, or ER. Some are covered by a layer of “slime” called a capsule. Some have flagella for locomotion.
  • 8. 1. Cocci – spherical (coccus)2. Bacilli – rod-shaped (bacillus)3. Spirilla – spiral (spirillum)
  • 9.  Most are heterotrophs although some are autotrophs.
  • 10.  The autotrophic bacteria either use chemicals as a source of energy (chemoautotrophs) or are photosynthetic (photoautotrophs).
  • 11.  Some are parasites which live off a living host Leucothrix mucor
  • 12.  Some are saprobes, feeding off dead organisms and waste (i.e., decomposers).
  • 13.  Prokaryotes have a single circular chromosome attached to the inside of the plasma membrane
  • 14.  Prokaryotes reproduce by simply splitting in two The DNA is copied and the cell divides into two identical cells.
