Types of Cells
Living things are grouped or classified according to the kinds of cells of
which they are composed. This resource looks at the cellular make-up of
living things via the division into prokaryotes or eukaryotes. Let's now
review the main structures, features and functions of eukaryotic and
Cells have certain structural and functional features in common, but
differ in shape, content and functions. There are unicellular and
multicellular organisms, and most functions essential to survival of the
organism as a whole take place in the individual cells - the structure of
cells relating directly to their function. Viruses are non-cellular and are
not, therefore, classified into one of the five kingdoms.
Amoeba: a single-celled member of the Kingdom Protista.
Bacteria: given enough food, each cell can duplicate itself every twenty
Blue cheeses owe their sharp aroma to veins of mould Penicillium
roquefortii - a type of fungus.
