Abstract Classical plant morphology still provides the conceptual framework for most phytomorphological investigations and highly relevant concepts and data for other botanical disciplines such as plant morphogenesis, molecular genetics, ecology, systematics, evolutionary plant biology, etc. Typical classical morphology is categorical, i.e. the diversity of plant form is reduced to mutually exclusive morphological categories such as root, shoot, stem (caulome), leaf (phyllome), and trichome.
