PLANT KINGDOM CLASSIFICATION | 5 Major Divisions in Plant Biology


In this tutorial, we will learn about the Plant Kingdom Classification which is one of the major topics in Plant Biology. All living organisms are classified into five broad kingdoms – Monera, Protista, Fungi, Animalia and Plantae. PLANT KINGDOM CLASSIFICATION Previously many members of Fungi, Monera and Protista which had cell walls were classified under […]
