Plant Taxonomy: Summary & Characteristics

Defining Characteristics of the Plant Kingdom: Multicellular Terrestrial Embryophytes Photosynthetic (almost all) Eukaryotic 4 Major Groups 1.     Non-Vascular Plants (Bryophytes and Friends) No vascular tissue – therefore must rely on surrounding moisture and osmosis to move fluids through their bodies. Small in stature, and simplistic – NO organs (roots, leaves, stems) (Rhizoids = root-like structures…
