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.

Stay alert!
