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
