Hey student.
 
Two Kingdom system of classification with Plantae and Animalia kingdoms.
1. Two kingdom classification did not distinguish between the prokaryotes and eukaryotes. E.g.: It brought together the prokaryotic bacteria and blue green algae with other groups (like plant, fungi and animals) which were eukaryotic.
2. Two kingdom classification did not distinguish between the unicellular and multicellular organisms. E.g:: Chlamydomonas (unicellular) and Spirogyra (multicellular) were placed together under algae.
3. This system did not distinguish between autotrophic/photosynthetic (green algae and plants) and the heterotrophic/non-photosynthetic organisms (fungi).
Five Kingdom Classification:
1. Fungi were placed in a separate kingdom—kingdom fungi.
2. It has put together organisms which were placed in different kingdoms in earlier classifications.
Kingdom Protista brought together Chlamydomonas, Chlorella (earlier placed in algae within plants and both having cell walls) with Amoeba and Paramoecium (earlier plaeed in the animal kingdom and both lacking cell walls).
3. Animal and plant kingdoms become more homogenous than they are in the two kingdom classification. So, it is the advantageous over the two kingdom classification.
