Five Kingdom Classification.Another way of classifying living things, such as proposed by RH Whitaker from Cornell University.

Five Basic Classification Kingdom

Whitaker classify living organisms into five kingdoms, based on three criteria, namely as follows:
1. The body of an organism composed of prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells.
Prokaryotic cell is a cell that has no nucleus membrane, but has a core material. Sukariotik cells are cells that have a nucleus membrane which limits the part of the nucleus with the other parts of protoplasm.
2. The body of one-celled organisms (uniselluler) or composed of many cells (multiselluler)
3. nutritional type, which is photosynthetic, absorptive or ingestif (eating food) photosynthetic organisms that make the sun as an energy source.

Absorptive organisms that absorb food from its environment, the organisms living in or on the food source. Organisms that ingestif most active move to obtain food.

Classification of living things in Five Kingdom Classification

3 Based on the above criteria Whitaker classify living organisms into five kingdoms, namely Monera, Protista, Plantae, Fungi, and Animalia.

1. Kingdom Monera
The characteristics of Kingdom Monera as follows:
a. Is a prokaryotic cell nucleus (not having nuclear membrane).
b. Single cell creatures (uniselluler).
Example: Bacteria, most are absorptive. Blue algae, are photosynthetic.

2. The Kingdom Protista
a. Cells are eukaryotic nucleus (core having nuclear membrane).
b. Single cell creatures (uniselluler).
Example: Algae, are photosynthetic. Protozoa, are mostly ingestif, but there are some protozoa are absorptive.

3. Kingdom Plantae
a. Are eukaryotic cell nucleus.
b. Multicellular living beings (multiselluler).
c. Photosynthetic.

4. The Kingdom Fungi
a. Are eukaryotic cell nucleus.
b. Multicellular living beings (multiselluler).
c. Type absorptive nutrition.

5. Kingdom Animalia
a. Are eukaryotic cell nucleus.
b. Multicellular living beings (multiselluler).
c. Type ingestif nutrition.
