Whereas prokaryotes have single, circular genomic material and are haploids, eukaryotes have multiple, linear DNA molecules, defining them as diploids. Besides their cellular structure, eukaryotes are equipped as more complex structures that include animals, plants, and a vague grouping of protists. Overall, the actual classification of eukaryotes has been somewhat undefinitive when it comes to the protists. Once inclusive to their own domain Protista, protists include a wide group of nonrelated organisms that basically did not fit into any of the other kingdoms.
