What is the criterion for classification of organisms as belonging to kingdom Monera or Protista?
The criterion for the classification of organisms belonging to kingdom Monera or Protista is the presence or absence of a well-defined nucleus or membrane-bound organelles. Kingdom Monera includes organisms that do not have a well-defined nucleus or membrane-bound organelles and these are known as prokaryotes. Kingdom Protista, on the other hand, includes organisms with a well-defined nucleus and membrane-bound organelles and these organisms are called eukaryotes.
