Metazoa

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Metazoa are multicellular organisms. Traditionally, Linnaean taxonomy classified all of life into two domains: Protozoa (unicellular) and Metazoa (multicellular)[1]. While unicellular life has since been shown to include different forms (prokaryotes, eukaryotes, archaebacteria), all metazoans are eukaryotic[2].

Metazoans comprise all the animals, plants, and fungi on the planet.
