In this video we are going to learn the characteristics of Kingdom Plantae.
- Most of the plants belonging to Kingdom Plantae are eukaryotic in nature and having chlorophyll for the synthesis of food, so they are autotrophic in nature
- The nucleus of eukaryotic organism is membrane bounded
- A few members are partially heterotrophic such as the insectivorous plants or parasites
- Bladderwort and Venus fly trap are examples of insectivorous plants to trap the nitrogen from insects
- Cuscuta is an example of a parasite
- The cell wall of the plant is made up of cellulose
- Bacterial cellulose is known as chitin
- Plantae includes algae, bryophytes, pteridophytes, gymnosperms and angiosperms
- Members of Kingdom Plantae are unicellular as well as multicellular
- Two different phases can be observed in the life cycle of plants, namely:
- Sporophytic: It is the diploid plant body
- Gametophytic: It is the haploid plant body
