Hi Brian,                      

       Some of us still prefer a single Kingdom Protista, but recognizing some newly discovered Phyla within it.  In my last classification of Protista which I posted on Taxacom in 2011, I recognized 17 Phyla.  It shows that Chromalveolata must be either split up or expanded (especially to include Phylum Rhizaria).  Either way, I never liked either Chromista or Chromalveolata.  Here's a weblink to my 2011 classification:

> 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!
