- Kingdom containing multicellular organisms having cells bound by a plasma membrane and organized into tissue and specialized tissue systems that permit them to either move about in search of food or to draw food toward themselves. Unable to make their own food within themselves, as photosynthetic plants do, they rely on consuming preformed food. They possess a nervous system with sensory and motor nerves, enabling them to receive environmental stimuli and to respond with specialized movements.

Although most flutes are tubular, some are globular (as with a gourd flute). A flute is sounded by a stream of air from the player's lips striking against the sharp edge of an opening, breaking the air up and vibrating within the enclosed space. The air may be blown in from an end or from the side, depending upon the type of flute. Many, but not all, modern flutes are equipped with the Boehm system of keywork.
