CARL LINNAEUS BOTANIST (person who studies plants) Designed the system used for CLASSIFYING plants Known as the “Father of Ecology”
SYSTEM of CLASSIFICATION 1. DOMAIN 2. KINGDOM 3. PHYLUM 4. CLASS 5. ORDER 6. FAMILY 7. GENUS 8. SPECIES
DOMAINS All living things are GROUPED into THREE domains. BACTERIA ARCHAEA EUKARYA (having EUKARYOTIC cells…plants & animals)
PLANT KINGDOM VASCULAR Plants that have tube- like cells used to transport food and water throughout the plant XYLEM ---carries water from roots to stem and leaves PHLOEM ---carries food (sugar)from leaves to roots NON-VASCULAR Plants that DO NOT have tube-like cells to transport food and water throughout the plant. Plants that DO NOT have leaves, stems or roots. They get water through a root- like structure called RHIZOIDS Plants that grow in damp, shady areas on sides of trees and rocks (MOSS)
FERNS Ferns are a seedless VASCULAR plant. Over 12,000 known species of ferns. Leaves of a fern are called FRONDS SORI are the cluster of reproductive spores on the under side of the frond
CONIFERS Conifers are GYMNOSPERMS, they have SEEDS but NO flowers. Leaves (needle-like) remain GREEN all year Reproductive organs are found in CONES (pollen & eggs). Cones produce SEEDS Conifer trees grow large & tall…used for LUMBER & PAPER
FLOWERING TREES & PLANTS Trees & plants that come from SEEDS and have FLOWERs are known as ANGIOSPERM They have vascular cells for transporting food & water. Over 250,000 known species The FLOWER contains the reproductive organs that produce SEEDS.
