    One thought on “Five Kingdoms: An Illustrated Guide to the Phyla of Life on Earth”

    1. This book is an illustrated taxonomy of life on the planet and, as such, well produced and illustrated.Taxonomy is always developing as new discoveries come to light - new fossils, new DNA analyses - so some might argue for six kingdoms while others might have niggles with specific classifications. The five kingdoms recognised by the authors are animals, plants, bacteria, fungi, and protoctists.(The illustrations are good but entirely monochrome, so if it's colour you want you'll have to look el [...]

    2. "We wrote it for science students, their teachers, and anyone who is curious about the extraordinary variety of living things that inhabit this planet." Well, not very satisfactory for the last group of readers. The entire book is black and white, except for the cover, which is almost so; the text is a mechanical catalogue of all 92 phyla, each in about 2 pages, in technical jargons, of which many are not explained or found in the glossary. With a few exceptions, each phylum has only one species [...]

    3. Most of the book consist of encyclopedia entries of sub phylas. The book makes for dense readings and I ended up skipping most of them, but the lengthy introduction and detailed descriptions of each kingdom made for interesting reading. I wanted to understand the taxonomy for all life and the difference between archaea and bacteria, and the book did that for me (I didn't realize it was due the differences in the 15s rRNA, I didn't even know there was such a thing until I read this book).

    4. A good reference but like all books using a classification system there is disagreement with other authors. Great description of each group though.

    5. this book was really easy to read and understand which I really liked. and it was cool reading how they viewed the kinds then compared to now since instead of five there are seven now

    6. An amazing book - a guide, as at 1982, of all the phyla. Us chordates are only one of nearly 100 - a humbling statistic. We're far outweighed by the others.
