Scientist Carolus Linnaeus was the first to present the Plant kingdom, he was the first to classify the organisms, in which he divided the organisms into two kingdoms.

1. Kingdom Plantae 2. Kingdom Animalia

He classified the organisms on the basis of the cell wall.

This means those which had cell wall were kept in the Plant kingdom and those which did not have cell wall were kept in the Animal kingdom.

they made an artificial classification.

When an organism is classified on the basis of some external morphological features, then such classification is called artificial classification
