Carl Linnaeus was a scientist who developed a classification system for living things.
Wrote book Systema

reveal his classification
system.Classifying Living Things
Cladogram- a branching diagram that shows evolutionary relationships.
We use taxonomy – the science of classifying living things, to help us determine the cladogram.Cladograms
Prokaryotes or Eukaryotes
Feeding Type - How the organisms get their food
The common bacteria that most people talk about when they say “bacteria”, because they live in more neutral conditions.Eubacteria Kingdom
Protists include many widely ranging microbes, including slime molds, protozoa and primitive algae.Protists
The “Junk Drawer” Kingdom
Amebic dysentery - is an infection of the intestines caused by the parasite Entamoebahistolytica.Protists Disease
Amebiasis is contracted by consuming contaminated food or water containing the cyst stage of the parasite. It can also be spread by person-to-person contact.
African Sleeping Sickness They are transmitted to humans by tsetse fly (Glossina genus) bites.Protists Disease
Malaria-Malaria is caused by a parasite that is transmitted from one human to another by the bite of infected Anopheles mosquitoes.Protists Disease
Heterotrophic- break down dead organic material and continue the cycle of nutrients through ecosystems.Fungi Kingdom
Fungi live off, or consume dead or decaying plant or animal material which is an important role they play in all ecosystems.
All fungi absorb their food.Fungi Energy Sources
Autotrophs-make own carbs for energy through photosynthesisPlant Kingdom
Flowering Plants (Angiosperms)
- flowering plants
have a hard external skeleton made of chitin known as an exoskeleton
have a hard internal skeleton made of bone or cartilage
Major phylums of animals are…
Cnidarians: Jellyfish, corals, and other stingers. . . Their stinger is called a nematocyst
Human liver fluke
