Plant Plants are mainly multicellular, predominantly photosynthetic eukaryotes of the kingdom Plantae.Historically, plants were treated as one of two kingdoms including all living things that were not animals, and all algae and fungi were treated as plants However, all current definitions of Plantae exclude the fungi and some algae, as well as the prokaryotes the archaea and bacteria. Kingdom biology In biology, kingdom Latin regnum, plural regna is the second highest taxonomic rank, just below domain.Kingdoms are divided into smaller groups called phyla.Traditionally, some textbooks from the United States used a system of six kingdoms Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, Protista, Archaea Archaebacteria, and Bacteria Eubacteria while textbooks in countries like Great Britain, The Six Kingdoms RIC Home The Six Kingdoms When Linnaeus developed his system of classification, there were only two kingdoms, Plants and Animals But the use of the microscope led to the discovery of new organisms and the identification of differences in cells. BiologyKids Plants If you re not a microbe and you re not an animal, you are probably a plant There are about thousand known species of plants Because plants adapt so well to almost any climate, scientists needed a way to organize the hundreds of thousands of species. Plant Kingdom Softschools The Plant Kingdom contains all multi cellular plants that use sunlight and water to produce their own food through a process called photosynthesis Virtually all living organisms depend on plants in some way Most importantly, plants produce the oxygen that we breathe Animals also eat plants in Green plants Tree of Life Web Project Green plants include all organisms commonly known as green algae and land plants, including liverworts, mosses, ferns and other nonseed plants, and seed plants There are two major lineages of green plants One consists of most of what have been classically considered green algae mostly Plants or Animals Zephyrus Living things are CLASSIFIED into GROUPS. These are known as TAXONOMIC GROUPS. The problem is there are so many living things, the main GROUPS have to be divided into many SUB GROUPS. Below are the main TAXONOMIC GROUPS These are known as KINGDOMS Do all plants do photosynthesis and use carbon dioxide These green plants are busy making simple carbohydrates from sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water This is called photosynthesis.Do all plants carry on photosynthesis and use carbon dioxide Bringing food, animals or plants into the UK Plants GOV Bringing plants to the UK from abroad If you re travelling from a country outside the EU, many products have weight and quantity restrictions or are banned completely unless you have a Nuclear Power in the United Kingdom UK Nuclear Energy Nuclear energy in the UK, nuclear power in the United Kingdom, the history of nuclear energy in the UK including nuclear power plants and facilities at Sellafield, Sizewell, Bradwell, Berkely, Hinkley, Hunterston, Hartlepool, Heysham, Oldbury, Wylfa, Dungeness, Braystones, Kirksanton
