I. Types of Organisms: A.  Prokaryotes: These organisms lack a nucleus and any well defined  organelles (“little organs”). This group includes all bacteria  ( Kingdom Monera ). This kingdom is divided into 2 lineages:  Archaebacteria (“Ancient Bacteria”) and Eubacteria (“True  Bacteria”). B.  Eukaryotes: Organisms that have a membrane bound nucleus as  well as defined organelles, e.g. Mitochondria, golgi bodies,  endoplasmic reticulum.  This group includes plants ( Kingdom  Plantae ); animals ( Kingdom Animalia ), as well as many single  cell organisms such as ameba, algae & molds ( Kingdom  Protista ); fungi ( Kingdom Fungi ).

 C.  Viruses: Not really considered a “living” organism. They are  obligatory intracellular parasites  that require a host cell to  survive and to reproduce because they totally lack any cellular  machinery of their own. They do not have nor belong to any  Kingdom.  Each type of virus can infect and parasitize only a  limited range of host cells, called  Host Range . There are  several bacteriophages (bacterial viruses) that can only  parasitize  E.coli .  Some viruses can have a broad host range;  Example: Rabies virus - infects a number of mammalian cells  such as human, dogs, racoons, skunks.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
