Bacteria are classified as members of the Monera Kingdom.
They have the following significant characteristics:
Algae, amoebas, euglena, paramecia are classified as members of the Protista kingdom.
The following are some of the most significant characteristics of Protista:
Moulds, mushrooms, yeast, and other fungi are also members of the Fungi kingdom. They have a broad number of uses in both domestic and industrial environments.
Vertebrates are creatures with a vertebral column and/or a notochord at some time during their existence.
A vertebrate is an animal that, at some stage in its life, exhibits any of the following characteristics:
Invertebrates are species that lack a vertebral column, which is derived from the notochord. Apart from the Vertebrata subphylum, all species fall under this category.
Animals without a backbone are known as invertebrates. Of the approximate 15-30 million animal organisms, invertebrates account for more than 90% of the number. Invertebrates can be found almost everywhere. They have been discovered in the driest of deserts, the upper atmosphere, and the canopy of the wettest rainforests. They can also be found in the frozen Antarctic or under the ocean’s lowest depths.
Let’s learn about the traits of invertebrates now that you know what they are.
In this chapter, we learned about the classification of kingdoms. We studied the characteristics of each kingdom, as well.
