I was surpriesed to see that several information about protist is not consistent. Lets take a look. According to my biology lecture note: If it isn't anything, it is a protist: Kingdom protists -not a clade -not a legitimate taxon According to the wikipedia There is still lot of conflict whether protist is a kingdom or domain. According to an expert(annonymous): Example:Apicomplexa= Domain: Eukaryota Kingdom: Chromalveolata Superphylum: Alveolata Phylum: Apicomplexa excavata, chromalveolata, Rhizaria is kingdom. ------------------ What do you think? Everyone has different opinion how the protist should be classified. What should be preferred theses days? i.e., which one is more trustworthy?
