This is the broad biological classification of plants. It's used mainly as a scientific reference to elements within a biological or phylum based statement, referring to plants in terms of a generic idiomatic situation. Depending on context, it may refer to living or extinct plants, or to the ecological framework of plants. Despite appearances, it's an effective form of syntax, reducing unnecessary usage and creating grammatical form.
Examples of Plantae:
|The plantae of the Jurassic period lacked many of the ecological structures in modern environments.|
The plantae of the region are notable for an almost total lack of modern vascular species.
