The Three Domains
ELC-4072 The Three Domains. The Three Domain Model was originally proposed by Carl Woese in 1990. Beginning with the early 1980 there was a move by some scientists to redefine the kingdoms to be monophyletic groups, groups made up of relatively closely related organisms. Carl Woese took the Prokaryota Kingdom and divided it into two new kingdoms: The Eubacteria Kingdom, and the Archaeobacteria Kingdom.
