How many kingdoms are there according to Haeckel and Whittaker?
May 13, 2017
Three Kingdoms by Haeckel, while the five Kingdoms by R H Whittaker.
- Haeckel classified the organisms into the Kingdoms of Animalia, Plantae and Protista. The prokaryotes, fungi and protozoa are classified under the Kingdom Protista.
- R H Whittaker (1966) classified the organisms into five kingdoms. The five Kingdoms of the R H Whittaker classification are Monera, Protista, Fungi, Plantae and Animalia. Thank you
