Plant Biology - Classification

Plant Biology
Plant - a living organism - is immobile and having autotrophic mode of nutrition. The first level of classification among plants depends on whether the plant body has well differentiated, distinct components. The next level of classification is based on whether the differentiated plant body has special tissues for the transport of water and other substances within it. Further classification is based on the ability to bear seeds and whether the seeds are enclosed within fruits.
