Archaebacteria and bacteria grow and reproduce; they are operationally plants.
While archaebacteria are specialised to live in extremes of temperature, pH, salinity and pressure other forms of prokaryotes are capable of occupying all other possible ranges.

The sequences encompass at least seven groups of methane-producing microbes of a type called archaebacteria.
Messenger RNA molecules (mRNAs) lacking 5' untranslated leader sequences have been observed in eubacteria, archaebacteria, and eukaryotic mitochondria (see 1 and references cited therein).
Although, as previously noted, "Non-Neutral Evolution" has a definite Drosophila bias, it is not as monochromatic as perhaps this review has made it sound: oysters (Beckenbach) and halophilic archaebacteria (Dennis) make appearances, and even vertebrates get a look-in in the final, largely theoretical, chapter by Takahata.

In today's world, prokaryotes are exemplified by organisms known as bacteria and archaebacteria, which inhabit every conceivable biological niche on the planet.
Phylogenies based on biochemical data indicate that eukaryotic mitochondria are a sister-group of the [alpha]-purple eubacteria, while eukaryotic cells are a sister-taxon to the archaebacteria (Yang et al.
