Plant Baramins


Plants are typically defined as multi-cellular organisms which lack locomotion and have eukaryotic cells, cell walls, and chloroplasts which allow for photosynthesis.

Plant Baramin

As is generally occurring within animal baramin, the family level seems to be a satisfactory default level for beginning to determine Created Kinds in plants. Although the plant sections are far from complete, based on work so far it is estimated that there will be about 44 kinds of Pteridophyte / fern kinds, 12 gymnosperm / cone-bearing kinds, and 365 angiosperm / flowering kinds. In general, this is down about 10% from the number of Families given by evolutionary taxonomy. As further research occurs, especially with increased access to hybridization records and use of the floral formula with angiosperm plants, these numbers are expected to change.

Vascular Plants

Spore Bearing / Pteridophyte Cognitum

The Pteridophytes include ferns, horsetails, and club mosses. They are vascular plants with roots, stems, and leaves but which reproduce using spores.

Cone Bearing / Gymnosperm Plants

The taxonomy and classification of the gymnosperms (cone bearing plants) including conifers, cycads, ginkgos.

Flowering / Angiosperm Plants

The taxonomy and classification of the angiosperm (flowering) plants including both monocot and dicot groupings.

Non-Vascular Plants

Non-vascular plants are those which do not contain the xylem and phloem tissues for transporting water. They generally do not have many specialized tissues and, therefore, do not have the size and complexity of vascular plants.

Algae Cognitum

The algae cognitum is a collection of aquatic plants ranging from unicellular, filamentous, colonial, and multi-cellular groupings. Some types of algae contain no roots, stems, or leaf structure. Other types, like kelp and seaweed, can grow to significant proportions. Algae is a major food source for aquatic animals.


Bryophytes contain the mosses and liverworts. They are usually terrestrial plants which reproduce by spores but lack vascular tissue. They have some roots, stem, and leaf structure.
