The Evolution of Prokaryotes: Archaebacteria and Eubacteria

1. The Evolution of Prokaryotes: Archaebacteria and Eubacteria

The first living organisms on Earth were bacteria. These small organisms still exist today and are responsible for many things. In this lesson, we will explore both ancient bacteria and true bacteria.

The Evolution of Protists: Importance & Evolutionary History

2. The Evolution of Protists: Importance & Evolutionary History

Some organisms are very familiar. However, there are some that play vital roles in our lives that we don't even think about. We will look at a group of one of these unfamiliar kingdoms - protists.

The Evolution of Plants and Fungi: Characteristics & Evolutionary History

3. The Evolution of Plants and Fungi: Characteristics & Evolutionary History

In early classification systems, plants and fungi were grouped together. While there are some similarities between these two kingdoms, there are some key differences that we will explore.

Viruses: Definition, Classification & Life Cycle

4. Viruses: Definition, Classification & Life Cycle

From the common cold to HIV, viruses can be an annoyance, and even have the potential to kill you. This lesson will define what a virus is, describe how scientists classify them and will give an overview of the virus life cycle.

Bacteria & Viruses: Beneficial Uses & Deleterious Effects

5. Bacteria & Viruses: Beneficial Uses & Deleterious Effects

What are bacteria and viruses? Learn about their harmful effects, as well as the benefits some of them provide to humans. Take a quiz and see how much you've learned.
