Monerans:
Monerans are one celled organisms or organalles. They do contain hereditary material it is not contained in a nuecleus. Even with out these cells moneran cells have the same basic life processes. They reproduce, grow and break down food to provide energy. Molicules inside this cell carrie out this process instead of organelles.

Protists

Protists are one-celled organisms with a nuclei and organelles. Some protist are consumers and consume living and dead organisms for food. Others produce food through photosynthesis the same way plants do. They can also move about using different methods. One is the use of flagellum, or a long whip-like extension. Another is cilia. These are hair-like growths on the cell membrane that can move. The last is through the use of pseudopods. Psuedopods are an extension of the cytoplasm of the cell.
