Before the nineteenth century, when plant classifications began to develop, plants were classified into only three groups: lower (algae), intermediate (bryophytes and pteridophytes), and higher (gymnosperms and angiosperms).
One of the great scientists, who devoted much of his time to the study of scientific classifications of plants, was the German biologist Ernst Mayr (1904 - 2005).
