THIS paper presents the results of study of the primary classification of organisms, the system of kingdoms, as continued beyond my previous discussion of the subject (1938). The present contribution was read and discussed at a meeting of the Western Society of Naturalists and again by a group called together by Dr. S. F. Light, of the University of California. The participants on these occasions showed a gratifying interest. I did not receive, and must not convey, the impression that the… Expand
New concepts of kingdoms of organisms
TLDR
My purpose in this article is to discuss the merits of two classifications which depart from the traditional two kingdoms, the systems of Copeland (1-3) and Whittaker (4, 5). Expand
The Kingdoms of Organisms
TLDR
A basic taxonomy of three kingdoms Mychota, Animalia, and Plantae is supported, where the intergrades between the latter two are treated not as defects of the classification but rather as the inevitable result of common ancestry and separation by a process of evolution. Expand
Protozoa, protista, protoctista: What's in a name?

TLDR
This paper focuses on the uneasy taxonomic and phylogenetic position of the unicellular eukaryotes with respect to the animal and plant kingdoms. Expand
Protist classification and the kingdoms of organisms.
TLDR
The classification seeks to offer a compromise between the protist and protoctist kingdoms of Whittaker and Margulis and to combine a full listing of phyla with grouping of these for synoptic treatment. Expand
"Protistan" nomenclature: analysis and refutation of some potential objections.
TLDR
Possible criticisms of the proposal are discussed, such as whether the introduction of more terms could lead to further taxonomic and nomenclatural instability, and it is concluded that the proposal remains a most reasonable solution to the problem of protistan nomenClature. Expand
A CLASSIFICATION OF PLANTS INTO HIGHER TAXA BASED ON CYTOLOGICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL CRITERIA
TLDR
It is proposed that plants be assigned to seven kingdoms, subordinate to the superkingdoms Procaryota and Eucaryota which are based on the procaryotic and eucaryotic types of cellular organization. Expand
HAECKEL ' S Kingdom Protista and Current Concepts in Systematic
  • 2006
Ernst HAECKEL, one of the biological giants of the second half of the 19th century, boldly created a novel third kingdom of organisms, the Protista, to contain the largely microscopic and unicellularExpand
Is It Kingdoms or Domains? Confusion & Solutions
TLDR
The purposes of the present paper do not include repetition of a voluminous literature on the details of putative kingdom categories, but are to suggest a system of three domains over the five-kingdom concept. Expand
Are red algae plants
TLDR
Submerging Kingdoms Plantae, Animalia and Fungi into Eukarya would provide a more natural framework for the eventual resolution of whether red algae are plants or protists. Expand
Kingdom protozoa and its 18 phyla.
The demarcation of protist kingdoms is reviewed, a complete revised classification down to the level of subclass is provided for the kingdoms Protozoa, Archezoa, and Chromista, and the phylogeneticExpand
