Ummmmm......5 kingdoms, 6 kingdoms.....7 kingdoms?????

Finding that fungi are not plants is attributed to Robert Whittaker in 1959
.....and that added a fifth to the previously established 4 (OK, I didn't
know that, but I did get a bit of assistance from Mx Google).  I know you
forgot about Protista and Monera, didn't you?.....The non-fungus
Phytophthora sits amongst this lot, but I can't keep track of name changes &
the movable feast of that stuff.

Since then Bacteria have been split in two: Archaea and Bacteria, and the
seventh kingdom of Cavalier-Smith, who added Chromista.
