Taxonomy classifies the organism in several groups according to their morphological and anatomical characteristics. An organism can develop with the course of time, it reproduces and it can respond to stimuli. The organism may be prokaryotes or it is also considered to be eukaryotes. Prokaryotes are the cells or organisms that lack a proper nucleus and membrane-bound organelles.

It can be further divided into 7 types.
Types of Kingdoms in Biology In 1969 R.H. Whittaker divided the organisms on the basis of cell structure, mode of nutrition, body organization, and reproduction.
5 Types of Microorganisms Microorganisms are tiny organisms that exist as unicellular, multicellular, or cluster of cells on the earth.
Some examples are rod-shaped – bacillus, spiral shape – spirilla, spherical shape – coccus, curved shape – vibrio.
Microorganisms cause diseases to humans and many of them are fatal. But microorganisms also help us in our daily life. The uses are as follows.
The differences between prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells are as follows :
