Monera is a kingdom that consists of all types of archaetype organisms. The members of this kingdom are prokaryotic in nature and include some of the earliest forms of life in this universe. This kingdom comprises of unicellular organisms. This kingdom was proposed and named by Ernst Haeckel in the year 1866. Monerans possess no distinct nuclei or organelles. They include the bacteria and the cyanobacteria.

They are found in all types of habitats like oceans to fresh water, bare rock to soil and also on humans and animals. They are also found in plants and other forms of vegetation. Green and blue algae and bacteria like bacilli are examples of monerans. They do not need special type of habitats for their growth and development. They are spread out every where on earth. Some of them are dangerous while some others are harmless.

Monera is derived from the Greek word moneres which means single. It is the name of a biological kingdom and is different from the plant kingdom. This kingdom includes all the prokaryotic organisms which include the earliest forms of life on earth like archaebacteria, eubacteria and cyanobacteria. Thus it is a kingdom of unicellular organisms that do not possess a nucleus or any other internal membranous organelles and multiply by the process of fission.

These organisms are neither part of the animal kingdom or the plant kingdom and are at the root of both as these organisms are the most primitive forms of life that was seen on earth and the beginning of organic life. Some of these organisms are capable of causing diseases in humans and animals. They are also good and significant decomposers. This kingdom was suggested by Ernst Haeckel, a German biologist in 1866. They are found on all parts of the earth and can breed in several places.
