The biological world is enormously diverse. There has to be an approach that enables us to get an idea of a group of organisms by studying a particular type. Living beings are classified as plants and animals.
Classification is the process of grouping similar things into groups or categories on the basis of similarities and differences.
Major groups of plants -
i. Thallophyta (thallus = undifferentiated; phyta = plant)
ii. Bryophyta (Bryo = moss; phyta = plant)
iii. Pteridophyta (first land plants with vascular bundles)
iv.Gymnosperms (Gymnos = naked; sperms = seed)
v. Angiosperms (angio = enclosed ; sperma = seed) Angiosperms are divided into monocot and dicot
