Transcript of Living Things Other Than Plants and Animals

unicellular organisms
described as
because they lack a nucleus
They exist in
four major shapes
: bacillus (rod shape), coccus (spherical shape), spirilla (spiral shape), and vibrio (curved shape).
Most bacteria have a
peptidoglycan cell wall

Green Algae
Types of Microorganisms
1. Bacteria
2. Fungi
Ex. mushroom, molds, and yeasts
(with a true nucleus)
obtain nutrients by absorbing organic material from their environment (
reproduce by releasing spores
Most fungi are multicellular and their cell wall is composed of
3. Algae
also called
or blue-green algae
obtain nourishment by photosynthesis
They live in water, damp soil, and rocks
produce oxygen and carbohydrates used by other organisms
4. Virus
are noncellular entities that consist of a nucleic acid core (DNA or RNA) surrounded by a protein coat. Although viruses are classified as microorganisms, they are not considered living organisms. Viruses cannot reproduce outside a host cell and cannot metabolize on their own. Viruses often infest prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells causing diseases.
5. Protozoa
unicellular aerobic eukaryotes
obtain nourishment by absorption or ingestion through specialized structures
They make up the largest group of organisms in the world in terms of numbers, biomass, and diversity
Their cell walls are made up of cellulose
