Default Bio Honors Help - Kingdoms and Microscope?



Hi, I need some help because my book is very lacking in this information. my question is:

For each of the six kingdoms (Bacteria, Archaea, Protists, Plants, Fungi, Animals), which type of microscope would I use to study that group of organisms and why?

The three types of microscopes are: Compound light microscope, scanning electron microscope, transmission electron microscope.

Thanks for any help in advance.

you could use a compound light to study
1. animals on the cellular level
2. plants on the cellular level
3. protists on the cellular level.
4. fungi on the cellular level.
you would use the electron microscopes to study all of the above on the intercellular level as far as i'm concerned its a loaded question and stupid at that. Smack that teacher in the face.

uhhh bacteria you would need a scanning electron microscope, or transmission electron microsope. Same for Archea bacteria. You could also use a compound light microscope.... but usually thats not normal, you can disregard this comment if you want

For Protists, Plants, you would use Compound light microscope.

For Animals and Fungi a transmission electron microscope would be nice since you can't see through them. A electron microscope would be too powerful
