Sacramento Junior College T HIS paper proposes the recognition of certain groups of living creatures as kingdoms in addition to the two which are conventionally recognized. Revision of the primary classification of organisms is a taxonomic operation, governed by taxonomic principles; it differs from revision of a family or genus only in wider scope. Because of the human need of an arrangement of organisms which will express as fully as possible existing knowledge and opinion concerning them… 
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).
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.
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.
Protist classification and the kingdoms of organisms.
Protistan phylogeny and eukaryogenesis.
Eukaryotism, Towards a New Interpretation
The phylogenetic-comparative molecular approach has caused a fundamental conceptual change in the way we view living matter. The new approach is based on the consequent utilization of genotypic
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.
[Some reflections on the classification of living organisms].
TLDR
Based on a historical survey, the different ways that have existed for classifying living organisms are presented and some current discussions regarding how organisms are grouped today are presented.

STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENT OF ZONARIA FARLOWII
TLDR
The present investigation is based on Z. Farlowii S. and G., which grows abundantly along the coast of southern California in the vicinity of Laguna Beach, which is of particular interest because of the peculiarity of certain features of its morphology.
Systematic Position of the Slime Molds and Its Bearing on the Classification of the Fungi
TLDR
It is pointed out that the familiar assumption that all living organisms are descended from a single primitive cell is unwarranted and less in accord with what the authors know concerning living organisms than the assumption that life may have originated more than once and in different forms.
THE LIFE HISTORY OF PHYSARUM POLYCEPHALUM
TLDR
The following account of the life history of Physarum polycephalum is offered with the hope that it may contribute something to the authors' knowledge of a relatively obscure group of organisms.
Contributions from the Cryptogamic Laboratory of Harvard University. LVI. Notes on the Myxobacteriaceae
TLDR
In the second notice of the Myxobacteriaceae, mention was made of two papers by the late Dr. Zukal, in which he maintained the mycetozoan nature of these forms in connection with a new theory of the constitution of the myxomycetous plasmodium, based on his interpretation of the conditions seen in C/iondromyces crocatus.
A Classification of the Algae Based on Evolutionary Development, with Special Reference to Pigmentation
TLDR
There is need for comparative chemical and physiological work embracing the pigments and products of assimilation in all of the classes of algae, as well as in the higher plants.
Hyperparasitism in Protozoa
TLDR
The parasite multiplied within the cytoplasm of the amoebae, formed large clumps, and at last brought about the death of their hosts, and was described as hyperparasitism.
Cytological Changes during the Formation of the Endospore in Bacillus megatherium
TLDR
Reviewers of the knowledge of the mode of formation of endospores in bacilli usually present the evidence under one or more of three theses: the endospore is formed by the growth of a specialized granule in the bacterial protoplasm, the fusion of a number of granules, some of which may be nuclear material, or by gradual condensation of cell-substance.
THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SEXUAL ORGANS IN LEPTOLEGNIA CAUDATA
TLDR
Although the fungus has been reported from a number of diverse regions its occurrence is rather infrequent, and it is interesting to note that Petersen (25, P. 5II) and Muller (2I) record the fungus as an exceedingly destructive parasite on Leptodora Kindtii.
Cytological Study of Oedogonium
TLDR
O. grande shows the figures more distinctly than their illustrations, furnishing a complete series of the mitotic process, especially the behavior of chromosomes which show a remarkable resemblance to those of higher plants.
Cytological Studies on the Cyanophyceae
Under the Pteropsida are grouped the classes Filicales, Pteridospermeae, and Gymnospermeae, the two latter being regarded as of coordinate importance and constituting the Paleozoic Spermophyta. The
