Classifying Plants

Study the classification of plants in Table 28-1. The 12 phyla of plants, formerly referred to as divisions, can be divided into two groups based on the presence of vascular tissue. The three phyla of nonvascular plants have neither true vascular tissue nor true roots, stems, or leaves. The nine phyla of vascular plants have vascular tissue and true roots, stems, and leaves.
