The flowering plants (also called angiosperms) are the dominant and most familiar group of land plants.
The flowering plants and the gymnosperms comprise the two groups in the seed plants.
The flowers of flowering plants are the most remarkable feature that distinguishes them from other seed plants.
Flowers initiated the differences between gymnosperms and angiosperms by broadening the scope of evolutionary relationships and niches open to flowering plants, allowing them to eventually dominate terrestrial ecosystems.
The number of species of flowering plants is estimated to be in the range of 250,000 to 400,000.
