What is the relationship between kingdoms and domains?
Kingdoms and domains are used to classify living things. There are 3 domains: Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukaryote. Within the domains, living things are sorted into Kingdoms. There are currently 5 Kingdoms protista, bacteria, archaea, plants, animals, and fungi. Previously, only the 5 kingdom system existed. Later however, the domains were added.
Scientists are always finding new species of animals and bacteria. Right now, there are three (3) Domains and six (6) kingdoms Archea, Bacteria, and Eukaryote are all the domains Archeabacteria, is in archea Eubacteria is in Bacteria and Eukaryote has six kingdoms Protista (Protists) Fungia (I could be wrong by the name, Fungi) Plantae (plants) Animae (Animals)
The current system, the Three Domain System, groups organisms primarily based on differences in ribosomal RNA structure. Ribosomal RNA is a molecular building block for ribosomes. Under this system, organisms are classified into three domains and six kingdoms. The domains are Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya. The kingdoms are Archaebacteria (ancient bacteria), Eubacteria (true bacteria), Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia
Prokaryotes are classified into their own kingdoms and domains. They are divided into two domains, Archaea and Bacteria. Archaea and Bacteria have their own kingdoms, the archaebacteria (or "ancient" bacteria) and eubacteria (the true "true" bacteria) respectively. ****Prokaryotes are classified by: ~Biological species ~morphological species ~genetic species ~biochemistry
