Difference Between Monera, Protista, Fungi, Animalia, Plantae

Difference Between Monera, Protista, Fungi, Animalia, Plantae. The five-kingdom classification was proposed by R.H. Whittaker in 1969 and was built on the work of two-kingdom classification.

In Five Kingdom Classification, the organisms are classified based on several characteristics such as mode of nutrition, thallus organization, cell structure, phylogenetic relationships, and reproduction.

It is the most common classification system of grouping organisms based on their simple distinctive characteristics.

Whittaker’s Five Kingdom was divided into five groups; Kingdom Animalia, Kingdom Plantae, Kingdom Fungi, Kingdom Protista, Kingdom Monera (Bacteria).
