It would be helpful if this superrosids page and those hierarchies above (and below) included a very few words on what characteristic(s) make an organism so. For example the Tracheophyta entry has ‘vasulcar plants’. I could see Spermatophytes having ‘seed-bearing plants’, etc. Just for those of us that don’t use these terms regularly don’t have to look them up.

Another thing - under Eukaryota it states: “Eukaryota (Eukaryotes) is a group of creatures”. Yet later on: “They includes groups like Excavates, Plants, and Amoebas.” Again, explaining that eukariotes are organisms that have a nucleus with a nuclear membrane such as plants, creatures, etc would be much clearer.

thanks, Phil
