Appendix -- Plant Classification(Last modified: 4 May 2015)
You will need a viewer which understands HTML tables in order to see this properly. If the following doesn't look very intelligable, your viewer probably doesn't support tables...
Please see the plant page for a discussion of the different classification methods.
|Phylum||Tissue Structure||"Seed" Structure||Stature|
|Fern- and Tree-like
|Tree- and shrub-like
|Tree-, shrub-, vine-, and herb-like|
Note that some of the stature classifications are rather
arbitrary. For example, a horsetail probably looks more like a herbacious
plant than a fern and cycads may look more like small palms than ferns. Some tropical ferns can be quite tall, resembling trees.
