Is the monera kingdom unicellular or multicellular?
The kingdom Monera consists of unicellular organisms.
according to new kingdom system organisms can be mainly classified through the Whitakers 5 kingDom of classification they are monera, protista,animalia,fungi,plantae. monera are further divided into two groups either unicellular or multicellular. unicellular yeast multicellular moulds. these can be further done by numerical taxonomy or dendograms or phylogenetic tree.these my give better results. or else refer "PELZAR
According to whittaker's 5 kingdom classification - its very clear that autotrophs are only plants. Animals can only be heterotrophs. Think of it like this - Monera Protists Fungi Plants Animals Cell Type Prokaryotes |<-----------------Eukaryotes-------------------->| Autotroph Yes Yes but can NO Yes No be heterotrophs also Cell wall Yes No Yes Yes NO No. Of Cells. Unicellular Unicellular MultiCellular MultiCellular MultiCellular Cell level Tissue Level Organ Level
No, they are multicellular. Don't confuse plants with yeasts and algae!!! Yeasts are part of fungi. For the most part, fungi are multicellular, but yeast is the exception to that rule for that kingdom. And fungi are not plants. The Kingdom Fungi and Kingdom Plantae are separate. Algae can also be multicellular or unicellular depending on the genus. And algae, which includes seaweeds, are not plants either! Algae are under the Kingdom Protista.
