Five Kingdom system of classification suggested by RH Whittaker is not based on
RH Whittaker's classification is not based on the presence or absence of a well-defined nucleus. He gave a five-kingdom classification and used five criteria for delimiting kingdoms.
These are both come under body organisation
(i) Complexity of cell structure
(ii) Complexity of body structure
(iii) Mode of nutrition
(iv) Ecological life cycle including mode of reproduction
He divided organisms into five kingdoms as follows:
Kingdom - Monera

Osmosis is the process of movement of molecules from the region of higher concentration of solvent or lower concentration of solute to the lower concentration of solvent or higher concentration of solute through a semipermeable membrane. On absorption of water the turgor pressure inside the cells increases. It helps to maintain the shape of the cell. It helps in the growth, development, mechanical support and prevents wilting.
