Class Andreaeobryopsida of Phylum Bryophytes

     In the context of botanical taxonomy, the Class rank is a taxonomic level that groups together plant orders that share certain characteristics, such as the structure of their reproductive organs, their photosynthetic pathways, or their leaf anatomy. Classes are ranked below Phyla and above Orders in the hierarchy of taxonomic ranks.
     Plant Classes are used to group together orders of plants that are related in terms of their evolutionary history and shared traits.
     Classes are further divided into smaller taxonomic ranks such as Orders, Families, Genera, and Species, based on their evolutionary relationships and shared characteristics. These classifications are used by botanists to study and better understand the relationships between different groups of plants.
