Transcript of Binomial Nomenclature

Classification Taxonomy Six Kingdoms of Life Archaea&Bacteria:Organisms which are single celled that do not have a nucleus, organisms are very diverse
Protista:Organisms include both unicellular and multicellular, the autotrophs photosythesize while the heterotrophs ingest their food and contains the greatest diversity of organisms.
Fungi:Organisms are both unicellular and multicellular.
Plantae:Organisms which photosynthesize to create their own food, are sessile and multicellular with complex and specialized cells.
Animalia: Organisms that ingest their food and have complex and specialized cells. Three Domains
of Life
Binomial Nomenclature The scientific naming of species whereby each species receives a Latin or Latinized name of two parts, the first indicating the genus and the second being the specific epithet
