Description

A mind map on speciation and classification

Resource summary

Classification
1 Animals

Annotations:

  • E.g. Wolf Animals are multicellular organisms that requires movement and to feed heterotropically in order to obtain food and reproduce sexually.
1.1 Mammals

Annotations:

  • E.g. Fox. Mammals are warm-blooded animals with a significant amount of hair on their bodies. They can be carnivorous, omnivorous, or herbivorous.
1.2 Birds

Annotations:

  • E.g. Red Kites Birds are warm-blooded feathered animals that are herbivorous. Most have the ability to fly, however some cannot fly at all! They are, predominantly, directly descended from prehistoric reptiles.
1.3 Fish

Annotations:

  • E.g. Barracuda Fish are scaly fully-aquatic animals with the ability to breathe underwater will gills. They are cold-blooded and lay eggs, and occasionally, such as in the case of a good few species of shark, let babies grow in a uterus of sorts. They are majorly carnivorous, with very few omnivorous/herbivorous species.
1.4 Amphibians

Annotations:

  • E.g. Frogs Amphibians are cold-blooded animals that are predominantly carnivorous. They can in some cases breath underwater through their skin. They lay their offspring in large bodies of water in order to allow for them to develop healthily. 
1.5 Reptiles

Annotations:

  • E.g. Salamanders Reptiles are scaly cold-blooded animals that are predominantly carnivorous. They lay large, rough eggs with a leathery texture. They normally live in arid enviroments.
2 Plants

Annotations:

  • E.g. Rose Plants are multicellular organisms that require to perform Photosynthesis (feed phototrophically) in order to obtain food and reproduce sexually.
3 Fungi

Annotations:

  • E.g. Cordeceps Fungi are multicellular organisms that require to break down dead or dying cells in order to obtain food (feed saprophytically). They reproduce asexually.

5 Protoctista/Protists

Annotations:

  • E.g. Seaweed Protists are unicellular organisms that can form, in the case of some species, large covalent colonies. They can reproduce sexually or asexually, using either binary fission or conjunction. They can, in quite a few cases, use photosynthesis to  obtain food or by engulfing their prey with their bodies.
6 Prokaryotes

Annotations:

  • E.g. Escherichia Coli Prokaryotes are unicellular organisms without nuclei, but still a fair bit of mitochondria. They can reproduce with binary fission, but most use conjunction. They obtain food by engulfing their prey and then digesting them.
7 Binomial system

Annotations:

  • The Binomial system is when you take the Genus and Species name for an organism and combine them to form their Latin name. E.g. Homo is the Genus name        Sapien is the Species name        Homo Sapien.
8 Speciation

Annotations:

  • Speciation it when, due to allopatric, parapatric or sympatric conditions, one group of a single species gets separated. Then, at least one of the separated parties goes through a significant amount of change due to the different conditions the other half of the split group must face. Once the conditions return to whatever they were before the signifcant change occured, if it ever does revert, the two separated parties are altogether different species. In some cases, they are both different to the original species!
