Monera is the taxonomic kingdom that includes prokaryotic organisms, which are organisms with cells that do not have a nucleus. Monera breaks down into four bacterial subcategories: Archaebacteria, Acitomycetes, Mycoplasms and Eubacteria.
Gram-positive bacteria, blue-green algae and extremophiles are some examples of Monerans. Currently, most scientists divide the former Moneran kingdom into two separate kingdoms: Archaebacteria and Eubacteria.
Some examples of Monera are halobacteria, methanobacteria, pyrococcus and methanosarcinales, which are considered members of the domain archaea. Other monerans are all known bacteria. Members of monera are single-celled prokaryotes, which means that their cells have no ...
Members of Monera, which include the prokaryotic bacteria and cyanobacteria, are single-celled and lack a membrane-bound nucleus. They also lack other membrane-bound organelles, such as mitochondria, and reproduce asexually.
Monera kingdom characteristics include unicellular organisms, primitive organisms and the presence of a rigid cell wall. Monera are thought to be the most basic kingdom on the planet and are comprised of mostly bacteria.
The kingdom Monera included bacteria and cyanobacteria. Classification systems change when technologies such as DNA sequencing provide new information about the relationship between organisms. A three-domain system consisting of Bacteria, Archaea and Eukarya supplanted ...
Kingdom Monera contains two very distinct groups, the eubacteria and archaebacteria, but both usually have cell walls surrounding cell membranes, which contain loosely bound DNA and DNA rings but no membrane-bound organelles. Both types come in spherical, rod-shaped and...
