All living organisms can be classified into five different groups – these are called the ‘5 Kingdoms of Life’. Two of these groups are animals and plants; the other three groups – monera (bacteria) , protista and fungi – are microorganisms. Microorganisms are living organisms that are so small that we can’t see them with the naked eye – we need a microscope to see them. These tiny creatures dominate the planet and we must aim to have a good understanding of the different types of them, their structure, what they eat, how they reproduce and examples of ones that are both good and bad for us.
In this lesson we will cover Higher Level Leaving Cert Biology Microbiology. This lesson will cover:
- The 5 Kingdoms of Life
- Exam Questions
With lessons, tests, hotspots, games and interactive videos, improve your knowledge of Biology in the topic of Microbiology!
