Explain the basis for grouping organisms into five kingdoms
Basis for grouping organism into five kingdom is as follows:
On the basis of nature of organisation of nucleu
- Prokaryotic vs Eukaryotic structure of cells.
On the number of cells
- Unicellular versus Multicellular organisation.
- On the basis of nutrition
The three different modes of nutrition:
- Absorption from the environment(fungi)
Note: One group of ‘organisms’ that does not fit into any classification is ‘ Viruses’. Viruses are extremely small particles. They donot have a cellular structure and can reproduce by invading living cells.
