what is the difference between bacteria,virus,algae,fungi & protozoa.five differances.?

Bacteria:  A bacteria is a single celled organism that is essential for all life. They are either a parasite or live independently. Bacteria have three basic shapes that include spiral, coccus and bacillus. Bacteria multiply themselves by cell division. Antibiotics can usually kill them. An example of bacteria is meningitis and pneumonia.

Fungi:  A fungus is a spore producing organism that has no chlorophyll and can live as single celled yeast or as a larger multi-cellular mould. It will reproduce by spores. It will live by absorbing certain nutrients from any organic matter. Fungi include moulds, mildews, mushrooms and yeasts. Fungi can cause disease in immune suppressed people, such as jock itch and ringworm. Penicillin is made from a fungus.

Viruses:  Viruses are microscopically small and are the simplest microbiological entity. A virus is not an independent living organism and needs a host cell to replicate. They are sub-microscopic parasitic particles of nucleic acid (RNA or DNA) that are wrapped in protein. Viruses are immune to antibiotics and are spread in the air or by direct contact. They can lead to serious or sometimes deadly diseases, such as AIDS. 

Protozoa:  A protozoa is a single celled organism which is able to move and will feed on any organic compound of carbon and nitrogen, for example an amoeba. They can be parasites or live independently. They are usually found in water or soil. Protozoa have different shapes and will produce asexually. They can inhabit the human body as a parasite, for example in the large intestine.

Bacteria have three basic shapes that include spiral, coccus and bacillus. Bacteria multiply themselves by cell division. Antibiotics can usually kill them. An example of bacteria is meningitis and pneumonia.

Fungi: A fungus is a spore producing organism that has no chlorophyll and can live as single celled yeast or as a larger multi-cellular mould. It will reproduce by spores. It will live by absorbing certain nutrients from any organic matter. Fungi include moulds, mildews, mushrooms and yeasts. Fungi can cause disease in immune suppressed people, such as jock itch and ringworm. Penicillin is made from a fungus.

Viruses: Viruses are microscopically small and are the simplest microbiological entity. A virus is not an independent living organism and needs a host cell to replicate. They are sub-microscopic parasitic particles of nucleic acid (RNA or DNA) that are wrapped in protein. Viruses are immune to antibiotics and are spread in the air or by direct contact. They can lead to serious or sometimes deadly diseases, such as AIDS.

 The difference between bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa and algae are listed below. They all play a very important role in the decaying process.

They can inhabit the human body as a parasite, for example in the large intestine.

Algae:    Algae are photosynthetic organisms of a group which live mostly in water. It includes the different seaweeds. Algae are different to plants because they have no true stems, roots or leaves. Algae also cause red tide, which can be fatal to fish and people eating contaminated shellfish. They will reproduce asexually.

bacteria is a uni-cellular organism that is only a few microns in length and is a very important attribute of life, they reproduce by cell divison, they have both advantages(milk to curd) and also disadvantages(pneumonia). there are mostly about 3 shapes in bacteria that is rod shaped, spiral shaped and spherical shaped:

fungi are also similar to bacteria, it is also a uni-cellular organsim and reproduces by spores. it lives by feeding on any dead or decaying matter.an example for fungus is yeast:

viruses are very small and mostly harmful micro sized organisms.they reproduce by attacking a host they are mostly parasitic.they cause diseases like measels,cold.

ameoba is also a uni-cellular organism, it feeds on it's prey by making a food vacuole around it and competely engulf it, they multiply by cell division.

algae are multi-cellular organisms and have an ability to produce their own food by photosynthesis and reproduce by spliting their bodies once fully grown and rapidly multiply, but they aren't plants.
