Taxonomic Classification of Marine Organisms (Garrison T, Oceanography: An Invitation to Marine Science, 5th edition, Appendix VI, pp. 475-476) Exclusively nonmarine phyla generally have been omitted, along with most extinct phyla and classes. KINGDOM BACTERIA: Single-celled prokaryotes with a single chromosome that reproduce asexually and exhibit high metabolic diversity. KINGDOM ARCHAEA: Superficially similar to bacteria, but with genes capable of producing different kinds of enzymes. Often live in extreme environments. KINGDOM PROTISTA: Eukaryotic single-celled, colonial, and multicellular autotrophs and heterotrophs. PHYLUM CHRYSOPHYTA . Diatoms, coccolithophores, silicoflagellates. PHYLUM PYRROPHYTA . Dinoflagellates, zooxanthellae. PHYLUM CRYPTOPHYTA . Some “microflagellates”; cryptomonads. PHYLUM EUGLENOPHYTA . A few “microflagellates”; mostly freshwater. PHYLUM ZOOMASTIGINA . Nonphotosynthesizing flagellated protozoa. PHYLUM SARCODINA . Amoebas and their relatives. Class Rhizopodea . Foraminiferans. Class Actinopodea . Radiolarians. PHYLUM CILIOPHORA . Ciliated protozoa. PHYLUM CHLOROPHYTA . Multicellular green algae. PHYLUM PHAEOPHYTA . Brown algae, kelps. PHYLUM RHODOPHYTA . Red algae, encrusting and coralline forms. KINGDOM FUNGI: Fungi, mushrooms, molds, lichens; mostly land, freshwater, or hightest supratidal organisms; heterotrophic. KINGDOM PLANTAE: Photosynthetic autotrophs. DIVISION ANTHOPHYTA . Flowering plants (angiosperms). Most species are freshwater or terrestrial. Marine eelgrass, manatee grass, surfgrass, turtle grass, salt marsh grasses, mangroves. KINGDOM ANIMALIA: Multicellular heterotrophs. PHYLUM PLACOZOA . Amoeba-like multicellular animals. PHYLUM MESOZOA . Worm-like parasites of cephalopods. PHYLUM PORIFERA . Sponges. PHYLUM
