The different Kingdoms

Heya!,

I’m studying bio at a-level and I’m really confused about the different kingdoms within Bacteria, Archaea and Eukarya. The different sources online aren’t really helping.
Please help :frown:

Thank you!!
The Kingdoms are Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Prokaryotae and Protoctista and the three domains are Bacteria, Archaea and Eukarya. The system with kingdoms was accepted before Archaea were discovered and could be identified as different from the other two. I hope this helps.

Thankyou so much!! :smile:
May I ask if prokaryotae belongs to Archaea or Bacteria?
prokaryotae are bacteria

There are 5 kingdoms. Kingdom Animalia, Plantae, Bacteria, Fungi and Protista. Animals belonging to Kingdom Bacteria are mostly prokaryotes, and the rest of the kingdoms belong to Eukaryotes. Archaea domain mostly belongs to primitive organismsorganisms, which includes the prokaryotes. Prokaryotes are the organisms whose nucleus don't have nuclear membrane. Eukaryotes are the organisms whose nucleus are surrounded by nuclear membrane.

Thankyou for your reply! But I’m even more confused now 😅
Is there no certain answer for the different types of kingdoms? Or does it vary?
Thankyou again!
