All members of this kingdom are heterotrophs. What?
KINGDOM ARCHAEBACTERIA: They are unicellular prokaryotes with distinctive cell membranes as well as biochemical and genetic properties that differ from all other kinds of life. Many Archaebacteria live in harsh environments. KINGDOM EUBACTERIA: They are unicellular prokaryotes. Most of the bacteria (Germs) that affect your life are members of the Kingdom Eubacteria. KINGDOM PROTISTA: These organisms are placed here more because of what they are not than what they are. Kingdom Protista contains all Eukaryotes that are NOT Plants, Animal, or Fungi, more than 50,000 species in all. Kingdom Protista includes unicellular and a few simple multicellular Eukaryotes. Eukaroyotic cells have nuclei and organelles that are surrounded by membranes. The cells of multicellular protists are not specialized to perform specific functions in the organisms. KINGDOM FUNGI: Fungi are Eukaryotes, and most are multicellular. The cells of fungi have cell walls that contain a material called chitin. These organisms are heterotrophic and obtain their nutrients by releasing digestive enzymes into a food source. They absorb their food after it has been digested by the enzymes. Fungi act either as decomposers or as parasites in nature. KINGDOM PLANTAE: Plants are Eukaryote, multicellular and carry out photosynthesis. KINGDOM ANIMALIA: Animals are multicellular, Eukaryotes, and heterotrophic. Most members of the Animal Kingdom can move from place to place
