The earliest systems of classification :

( a ) all of the above
( b ) androecium structure
( c ) used gross superficial morphological characters
( d ) vegetative characters

1 Answer

(D) is the right answer.The earliest systems of classification used only gross superficial morphological characters such as habit, colour, number and shape of leaves, etc. They were based mainly on vegetative characters or on the androecium structure (system given by Linnaeus). Such systems were artificial; they separated the closely related species since they were based on a few characteristics.
