Modern biological classification is constantly changing as we get more information about different types of organisms. We will be researching a model that groups organisms into three domains based on shared characteristics. These three domains are further divided into six kingdoms based on additional shared traits. One of the groups we will be researching, kingdom Protista, is known to represent organisms with diverse evolutionary histories rather than one common ancestor. Scientists are still debating how organisms in this groups should be classified to best show their evolutionary history and shared traits.
Below are the steps you should follow daily to ensure you complete all parts of this research project.
