[Taxacom] Protist systematics

Dear colleagues,

The classification of protists has changed a great deal in the last decade or so.  Most introductory textbooks still refer to older classification systems because the protist classifications rapidly change.  However, there seems to be some growing consensus that at least a couple of new kingdoms have been introduced (e.g., Chromalveolata).

Are there any papers that have addressed the higher level classifications of the protists?  If so, might someone suggest a few such papers?

Thank you for your time!

Best regards, Brian
