The members that Kingdom Monera may be unicellular, but that doesn’t make them any less complex. Take, for instance, the difference between eubacteria and archaebacteria. Under a microscope, these two would look similar: two single-celled organisms v no atom membrane.

You are watching: How are eubacteria and archaebacteria different

It’s why, in fact, that no one realized the these two belonged to different categories till 1977 when Carl Woese discovered Archaea and also archaebacteria by comparing their 16S ribosomal RNA. Today, let’s check out the difference in between these and also eubacteria.

What Is Archaebacteria?

Archaebacteria: Asexually (Fission, budding, fragmentation)

Eubacteria: Spores to stay dormant v non-inhabitable conditions

Archaebacteria blee through way such as fission (splitting into two), budding (growing a new organism from an present organism), and fragmentation (splitting an organism right into multiple pieces and also then growing new organisms native those pieces).

Eubacteria, however, come in spores. These space dormant structures designed to stand up to environmental problems that might kill it.

Although this two varieties of bacteria are extremely small, the distinctions are very significant: eubacteria is an extremely ubiquitous this days and also can be uncovered everywhere, while archaebacteria deserve to only be found in specific conditions.
