  • Their body mycelium is made up of hyphae, thread like structures containing lots of nuclei
3.3 Can't Photosynthesise
3.4 Feed by saprotrophic nutrition


  • Meaning they secrete extracellular enzymes which digest food on the outside of the cell and absorb nutrients
3.5 Store carbohydrates as glycogen
4 Protoctists
4.1 single-celled and microscopic
4.2 some have chloroplasts
5 Bacteria
5.1 single-celled and microscopic
5.2 don't have a nucleus
5.3 have a circular choromsome of DNA
5.4 Most bacteria feed offf other organisms
6 Virus
6.1 very small, smaller than bacteria
