Definition of Plant

The half dozen current botany texts I have agree that the Plant Kingdom
consists of just bryophytes and vascular plants, so I was surprised that
the American Society of Plant Physiologists' Education Foundation's
'Principles of Plant Biology - Concepts For Science Education' states
that "Plants exhibit diversity in size and shape ranging from single
cells to gigantic trees." 

Is there still disagreement over what organisms are included in the
Plant Kingdom?
