We present a three-domain version of the classification of organisms. Recently, DNA sequencingbrought many of these associations and groupings into question. Be aware that the classification of organisms is dynamic, and it is a topic of ongoing scientific research and discussion. For example,DNA sequencing techniques have shown that any archaebacterium is as genetically different fromany bacterium as a bacterium is from any eukaryote. These relationships suggest that there shouldbe only three kingdoms: Archaebacteria, Bacteria, and Eukaryota. Check http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/exhibit/phylogeny.html for the most current information onclassifications of life. The classification scheme presented in this appendix is not comprehensive.
