The natural system of botanical classification, as distinguished from the artificial or Linnean system. According to this all plants are grouped under three main divisions: Acotyledones (Cryptogamia of Linne), Monocotyledones, and Dicotyledones, the latter being further divided into apetalous, monopetalous, and polypetalous.
