biology 11 – kingdoms


known as “true” bacteria. incredibly common in human daily life. have a range of characteristics and are found in a variety of conditions all over the planet.

salmonella enterica

Salmonella enterica is a rod-shaped, flagellate, facultative aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium and a species of the genus Salmonella. A number of its serovars are serious human pathogens.

Yersinia pestis

Yersinia pestis is a Gram-negative, nonmotile, rod-shaped coccobacillus, with no spores. It is a facultative anaerobic organism that can infect humans via the oriental rat flea. It causes the disease plague, which takes three main forms: pneumonic, septicemic, and bubonic plagues.



Very closly related to Eubacteria. Archaebacteria live in extreme places like volcanoes, The Dead Sea, and sometimes even in places with no oxygen.


Methanogens can be found in places where there is no oxygen. They types of environments vary greatly. Anywhere from swamps and marshlands to the intestinal tracts of us humans! Methanogens give off methane gas which helps us by removing excess hydrogen and fermentation products produced by other forms of anaerobic respiration.

Nitrosopumilus maritimus                                                      

Categorized as archaebacteria because of its unprecedented enrichment of multicopper oxidases, thioredoxin-like proteins, and transcriptional regulators points to an organism responsive to environmental cues and adapted to handling reactive copper and nitrogen species that likely derive from its distinctive biochemistry.



uni/multi cellular category, is well known for being called the junk drawer kingdom

Naegleria fowleri

a single celled organism that lives in freshwater such as lakes, ponds, streams etc


Phytophthora infestans                                 

also known as oomycete or water mold, a microorganism that causes the serious potato and tomato disease known as late blight or potato blight.




Zygomycota is a perfect example of fungi. It is one of the most fastest growing fungi and it is not commonly seen due to its microscopic size.



Microsporidia are a group of spore-forming unicellular parasites. They were once considered protozoans or protists, but are now known to be fungi, or a sister group to fungi



Rose-mallows are a flowering plant and they are a part of the plante kingdom. They reproduce asexually, and create pollen.


Dionaea muscipula

Venus flytraps conduct photosynthesis like regular plants, but they supplement their diet with insects.


the most complex of all kingdoms. Huge variety of diffrent species living in all kinds of diffrent conditions and environments.

Pygoscelis papua                                                                                                                        

Like any animal, gentoo penguins need to eat (from external food sources), sleep, breath and reproduce.


Lasius niger                    

The black garden ant is an animal because its ability to eat other food sources, breath and reproduce.
