Types Of Life

  1. 1. Essential Question: What are the main categories of living things and what are the basic characteristics of each category?
  2. 2. viruses
  3. 3. viruses
  4. 4. viruses bacteria and archaeans
  5. 5. viruses bacteria and archaeans
  6. 6. viruses bacteria and archaeans protists
  7. 7. viruses bacteria and archaeans protists fungi
  8. 8. viruses bacteria and archaeans protists fungi algae
  9. 9. viruses bacteria and archaeans protists fungi algae plants
  10. 10. viruses bacteria and archaeans protists fungi algae plants animals
  11. 11. Viruses
  12. 12. Viruses 1. Do not have cell parts (organelles)
  13. 13. Viruses 1. Do not have cell parts (organelles) 2. genetic material is DNA or RNA but not in the form of chromosomes
  14. 14. Viruses 1. Do not have cell parts (organelles) 2. genetic material is DNA or RNA but not in the form of chromosomes 3. covered in a protein coat but NOT like a cell membrane
  15. 15. Viruses 1. Do not have cell parts (organelles) 2. genetic material is DNA or RNA but not in the form of chromosomes 3. covered in a protein coat but NOT like a cell membrane 4. Cannot metabolize nutrients
  16. 16. Viruses 1. Do not have cell parts (organelles) 2. genetic material is DNA or RNA but not in the form of chromosomes 3. covered in a protein coat but NOT like a cell membrane 4. Cannot metabolize nutrients
  17. 17. Viruses 1. Do not have cell parts (organelles) 2. genetic material is DNA or RNA but not in the form of chromosomes 3. covered in a protein coat but NOT like a cell membrane 4. Cannot metabolize nutrients using chemical reactions to transform food molecules into other products for energy, for building, and for physiological processes
  18. 18. Viruses 1. Do not have cell parts (organelles) 2. genetic material is DNA or RNA but not in the form of chromosomes 3. covered in a protein coat but NOT like a cell membrane 4. Cannot metabolize nutrients 5. Cannot reproduce on their own (must infect a cell and get the cell to reproduce more viruses)
  19. 19. Bacteria & Archaeans
  20. 20. Bacteria & Archaeans 1. can be autotrophic or heterotrophic
  21. 21. Bacteria & Archaeans 1. can be autotrophic or heterotrophic
  22. 22. Bacteria & Archaeans 1. can be autotrophic or heterotrophic Produces their own carbohydrates for nutrition through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis.
  23. 23. Bacteria & Archaeans 1. can be autotrophic or heterotrophic Produces their own carbohydrates for nutrition through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis.
  24. 24. Bacteria & Archaeans 1. can be autotrophic or heterotrophic Produces their own carbohydrates for nutrition through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis. Must eat other living things to obtain nutrition.
  25. 25. Bacteria & Archaeans 1. can be autotrophic or heterotrophic 2. no membrane-bound organelles
  26. 26. Bacteria & Archaeans 1. can be autotrophic or heterotrophic 2. no membrane-bound organelles 3. cell walls of peptidoglycan
  27. 27. Protists
  28. 28. Protists 1. Can be heterotrophic or autotrophic
  29. 29. Protists 1. Can be heterotrophic or autotrophic 2. all are unicellular or colonial (NOT multicellular)
  30. 30. Protists 1. Can be heterotrophic or autotrophic 2. all are unicellular or colonial (NOT multicellular)
  31. 31. Fungi
  32. 32. Fungi •mostly multicellular (except yeast and some molds)
  33. 33. Fungi •mostly multicellular (except yeast and some molds) •cell walls made of chitin
  34. 34. Fungi •mostly multicellular (except yeast and some molds) •cell walls made of chitin •heterotrophic by absorption
  35. 35. Mr Black – a rescued cat that came in with a lot of health issues and a lot of wounds from living on the streets for a long time.
  36. 36. Ringworm is a common fungus present in soil. It’s everywhere.
  37. 37. Day 4
  38. 38. Day 4
  39. 39. Plants
  40. 40. Plants •autotrophic (photosynthesis)
  41. 41. Plants •autotrophic (photosynthesis) •all multicellular
  42. 42. Plants •autotrophic (photosynthesis) •all multicellular •cell walls made of cellulose
  43. 43. Animals
  44. 44. Animals •heterotrophic by ingestion
  45. 45. Animals •heterotrophic by ingestion •all multicellular
  46. 46. Animals •heterotrophic by ingestion •all multicellular •no cell walls
  47. 47. The End
