Animal Kingdom Classification

Animal Kingdom

Wildlife

Introduction:

Different types of animals are classified in various groups depending on the features they share. Some groups are clearly related to others, enabling scientists to arrange them in a “family tree” of the animal kingdom.

This shows how the groups are linked by their last common ancestor, although the details are always being revised in the light of new discoveries.


Almost 1.4 million species of living animals have been scientifically described and named, and more are found and classified every day.They belong to 35 major groups, each known as a phylum. Just one of these phyla, the chordates, includes all the vertebrates (the fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals).

All the rest are invertebrates (animals with no internal skeleton). One phylum, the arthropods, contains more species than all the others put together.

Classification:

All living things that have been scientifically described are classified in a multi level system of groups. Each group of closely related organisms is part of a larger group, and each type of group has its own name.

01) Kingdom:

All animals belong to the animal kingdom. The other kingdoms are plants, fungi, and three types of mainly microscopic organisms

02) Phylum:

The animal kingdom is divided into phyla—the main groups of animals. A phylum may be split into two or more subphylums

03) Class:

Each phylum usually consists of several classes. Some of these classes are grouped together to form superclasses

04) Order:

Every class contains many orders. For example, the class Mammalia (mammals) contains the order Carnivora (carnivores).

05) Family:

An order such as the Carnivora consists of several families. One family of carnivores is the Felidae, which includes all cats

06) Genus:

The family is divided into smaller groups, each called a genus. The genus Panthera contains the big cats.

07) Species:

A genus is a group of individual species. Each species has a two- part scientific name such as Panthera uncia, the snow leopard.

Animal Kingdom has 6 kingdoms

01) Archaea:


The simplest forms of life are single cells, small fluid-filled energy-absorbing bags that fuel their regeneration.

02) Bacteria:


Similar to archaea, but with different chemistry, bacteria live everywhere. Some illnesses are caused because others keep you alive.

03) Protists:


More complex than bacteria, these predominantly single cells have different functions.

04) Plants:


Made up of many cells that resemble resistors, plants especially use solar energy to determine their growth.

05) Fungi:


Single-celled or multi-celled fungi derive their energy by feeding exclusively on dead plant and animal material.

06) Animals:


All animals are multicolored. They get their energy by eating and digesting plants, fungi or other animals
These are 6 kindom of Animal Kingdom.Every Living Being whatever it is all are included in these 6 Kingdom's.

So far a total of 34 phylum have been discovered, as follows
