Bacteria occupy their own domain of life. The domain Eubacteria is tremendously diverse and embraces no fewer than 30 distinct phyla, according to the LSPN classification schema. Because of the eagerness with which bacteria exchange genes across species barriers via lateral gene transfers, firm clas
The five kingdoms in the classification system of life are animals, plants, fungi, prokaryotes and protoctists. Organisms are classified according to various characteristics that they share, and the kingdom classification is based on their cells. The kingdom is the first division of living organisms
Many animal kingdom classification charts include the categories of kingdom, phylum, class, order and family, and finish with genus and species. Some charts also show the division between unicellular and multicellular animals, as well as levels of organization within individual species in the animal
The six kingdoms in biological classification of organisms are Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Protista, Archaeabacteria/Archaea and Eubacteria/Bacteria. Organisms are placed in different classifications based on similarities in features such as cell type, metabolism and reproduction. In biology, kingdom
The two kingdoms of bacteria are Archaebacteria and Eubacteria. The two kingdoms were formerly classified into one kingdom, Monera, but the two types of bacteria have shown enough variation to warrant reclassification into two separate kingdoms.
According to Portland Community College, bacteria actually belong to two kingdoms: Archaebacteria and Eubacteria. Archaebacteria comprise the bacteria that live in the most hostile environments on Earth, such as thermal vents. Eubacteria are the more common organisms, such as those found in the huma
There are three major types of computer classifications: size, functionality and data handling. Classification of computers in relation to size divides computers into four main categories: mainframe computers, minicomputers, micro-computers and supercomputers. Different-sized computers offer differe
Enzymes are classified into six types: oxidoreductases, transferases, hydrolases, lyases, isomerases and ligases. Enzyme classification is based upon the chemical reaction that the enzyme catalyzes.
The current International Statistical Classification for Diseases and Related Health Problems is ICD-10, which contains 22 classifications that break down into hierarchies containing 14,400 diagnoses. These diagnoses are assigned codes that can be expanded to over 16,000 diagnoses via sub-classifica
All snakes are members of the kingdom Animalia, the phylum Chordata, the class Reptilia and the order Squamata. The family, genus and species classifications differ for different kinds of snakes.
