  Kingdom (biology)
In biology, a kingdom is the top-level, or nearly the top-level, grouping of organisms in scientific classification.
Originally, two kingdoms were distinguished, the Animalia (animals), which typically could move about, and the Plantae (plants), which typically could not.
He also proposed a kingdom Archezoa for primitively amitochondriate eukaryotes, but this gained limited support thanks to is obvious paraphyly and uncertain composition, and in later revisions he abandoned both it and the Archaebacteria.

  Kingdom (biology) Summary
The kingdom Protista contains a wide variety of organisms, ranging from single-celled autotrophs (diatoms, dinoflagellates) and heterotrophs (amoebas, ciliates) to colonially living heterotrophs (slime molds) and large multicellular autotrophs (algae such as kelp and seaweed).
The kingdom is further split into two major groups, based on the proportion of the nucleic acid that is composed of two particular building blocks (guanosine and cytosine).
When single-celled organisms were first discovered, they were split between the two kingdoms: mobile forms in the animal phylum Protozoa, and colored algae and bacteria in the plant division Thallophyta or Protophyta.

In biology, a kingdom is the top-level, or nearly the top-level, grouping of organisms in scientific classification.
Thus, he had three kingdoms for multicellular organisms, depending on whether they were autotrophic (Plantae), saprotrophic (Fungi), or heterotrophic (Animalia), and two for unicellular or colonial organisms (Protista and Monera).
He also proposed a kingdom Archezoa for primitive eukaryotes that lack mitochondria, but this gained little support due to the group's implausible heterogeneity, and in later revisions he abandoned both it and the Archaebacteria.

 Kingdom - definition from Biology-Online.org
Kingdom Monera: This is the most primitive of the five kingdoms, it encompasses all the bacteria.
Kingdom Protista: This kingdom is composed of single-celled (sometimes multicellular), eukaryotic organisms.
Kingdom Animalia: The members of this kingom are complex, multicellular, eukaryotic organisms that digest food outside their cells and then absorb the digested nutrients.

 Kingdom (biology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In biology, a kingdom or regnum is the top-level, or nearly the top-level, taxon of organisms in scientific classification.
When single-celled organisms were first discovered, they were split between the two kingdoms: mobile forms in the animal phylum Protozoa, and colored algae and bacteria in the plant division Thallophyta or Protophyta.
However, a number of forms were hard to place, or were placed in different kingdoms by different authors: for example, the mobile alga Euglena and the amoeba-like slime moulds.

Over time and as each plant kingdom ascends into the regenerative paradigm, plants will not lose their leaves in the winter, and flowers will bloom all year around; particularly in the less harsh climates that are closer to the equator.
The diaphragm in all animal kingdom biology along with humans, dolphins and whales, is designed to take oxygen collected from the lungs and convert it into blood sugar to feed the crystalline cells.
As breath becomes the main means through which each kingdom sustains their existence and consumption (the requirement to eat to subsist) is left behind, the plant and tree kingdoms ability to contribute oxygen to sustain the life of the other kingdoms becomes imperative.

For example, the word “biology” is made from the wordstems bios, which means “life,” and -logy which means “to study” or “the study of.”

Actually, the most recent edition of your textbook splits the bacteria into several kingdoms, but for our purposes, they are similar enough that we will consider all of them to be members of Kingdom Monera.
