  • 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:
  1. Sporophytic: It is the diploid plant body
  2. Gametophytic: It is the haploid plant body
