All true plants are multicellular eukaryotes and members of the Kingdom Plantae. All plants extract a majority of their energy autotrophically from sunlight through a process known as photosynthesis. More »

Most plants are autotrophs because they make their own food. Some plant species are parasitic, meaning they get their nutrients from other sources. Parasitic plants are heterotrophic. More »

Although it is commonly believed that plants require soil to grow, most plants do not. In fact, it is not the soil itself that causes a plant to grow, but rather the nutrients found in the soil. More »

Although they are sometimes called "blue-green algae," cyanobacteria are not plants and are prokaryotes, while green algae are plants and are eukaryotes. Both types of organisms obtain their energy from photosynthesis, b... More »

Fungi and plants both contain cells with nuclei and membrane-bound organelles, which differentiates them from bacteria. They both have cells surrounded by cell walls, which differentiates them from animals. They are both... More »

All organisms in the Kingdom Plantae are multicellular, which means that each organism is comprised of more than one cell. Being multicellular allows plants to grow large and complex, since the cells can differentiate an... More »

Plants are eukaryotes, with their DNA contained in a membrane-bound nucleus along with other membrane-bound organelles, such as mitochondria, chloroplasts and vacuoles. Their chloroplasts give them the ability to generat... More »
