  1. 1. Classification of Living Things
  2. 2. What is Life???? <ul><li>Metabolism </li></ul><ul><li>Growth </li></ul><ul><li>Reproduction </li></ul><ul><li>Response to stimuli </li></ul><ul><li>Adaptation to the environment </li></ul>
  3. 3. How do we classify living organisms? <ul><li>We use a system that is credited to Carolus Linnaeus called: Binomial nomenclature </li></ul><ul><li>This mean 2-name, naming. </li></ul><ul><li>Before we get to that we will start with much larger systems </li></ul>
  4. 4. KINGDOM <ul><li>The top-level, or nearly the top-level, taxon of organisms in scientific classification </li></ul>
  5. 5. PHYLUM <ul><li>Phyla represent the largest generally accepted groupings of animals and other living things with certain evolutionary traits </li></ul>
  6. 6. CLASS <ul><li>a rank in the scientific classification of animals and plants in biology.It is It is below phylum and above order. </li></ul>
  7. 7. ORDER <ul><li>The area of scientific classification in biology between class and family </li></ul>
  8. 8. FAMILY <ul><li>The area of biological classification of highly related organisms between order and genus. Next to genus and species this is the most important area of classification </li></ul>
  9. 9. GENUS and SPECIES <ul><li>In the binomial nomenclature used worldwide, the name of an organism is composed of two parts: its genus name (always capitalized) and a species modifier (known as the &quot;epithet&quot;) </li></ul>
  10. 10. In a nutshell…. <ul><li>Every time you use binomial </li></ul><ul><li>Nomenclature (Genus species), </li></ul><ul><li>You are also representing all </li></ul><ul><li>Of the classifications above </li></ul><ul><li>them </li></ul>
  11. 11. What are some differences in Kingdoms? <ul><li>There are a lot of reasons that organisms are classified into different kingdoms, phylums, etc. Let’s look at some: </li></ul>
  12. 12. The type of cell <ul><li>Prokaryotic </li></ul><ul><li>Eukaryotic </li></ul>
  13. 13. The way they eat <ul><li>Autotrophs: self-feeding. They make their own food; like plants, algae, etc </li></ul><ul><li>Heterotrophs: Different feeding; that is that they must consume food made outside of themselves </li></ul>
  14. 14. The way they reproduce <ul><li>Sexual reproduction </li></ul><ul><li>Asexual reproduction </li></ul>
  15. 15. The method of consumption: <ul><li>Carnivorous </li></ul><ul><li>Herbivorous </li></ul><ul><li>Omnivorous </li></ul><ul><li>Parasitic </li></ul><ul><li>Saprophytic </li></ul>
  16. 16. The way that they “breathe” <ul><li>Aerobic respiration </li></ul><ul><li>Anaerobic respiration </li></ul>
  17. 17. OK Lets look at some Kingdoms
  18. 18. MONERA <ul><li>Bacteria </li></ul><ul><li>Cyanobacteia: Blue-Green Algae </li></ul><ul><li>Viruses???????? </li></ul>
  19. 19. Monerans are classified by: <ul><li>Prokaryotic-no nucleus </li></ul><ul><li>Asexual </li></ul><ul><li>Many are autotrophic: light, nitrogen, sulfur </li></ul><ul><li>Many are anaerobic </li></ul><ul><li>Many have cilia or flagella </li></ul>
  20. 20. Evolution of Monera
  21. 21. Structures <ul><li>Notice the lack of a nucleus </li></ul>
  22. 22. Types of bacteria: Shapes <ul><li>Bacteria genus are named for their shapes </li></ul>
  23. 23. What about viruses???? <ul><li>They are not always classified as living organisms since they do not fulfill the criteria of living things without the assistance of another living cell </li></ul>
  24. 24. West Nile virus <ul><li>Often viruses need more than one host </li></ul>
  25. 25. Here is what a virus looks like <ul><li>Scary </li></ul>
  26. 26. What is Blue-green Algae? <ul><li>Cyanobacteria: </li></ul><ul><li>prokaryotes </li></ul><ul><li>Autotrophic </li></ul><ul><li>Very primitive </li></ul><ul><li>Photosynthetic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Chlorophyll </li></ul></ul>
