To better scientific accuracy I suggest correcting the group Clade to Division in the case of Tracheophyte (talk) 10:40, 30 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

I am no expert, and therefore might be very wrong but the scientific classification of animals order is incorrect. As far as I am aware, it should be Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species. However, here, Phylum and Class are both replaced with Clade.

As I am also no expert, perhaps we should ask editor ]
@President MG: do you really mean "animals"? Because this comment is at one of the main plant taxonomy templates.
In either case, the answer to the question is that the traditional set of ranks simply doesn't fit the reality of the relationships revealed by modern molecular phylogenetic methods, so current classifications inevitably use many clades, particularly for fossil groups. For example, start at Fossilworks view of Dinosauriformes and follow the "parent" links. Peter coxhead (talk) 08:51, 12 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you very much! ]

In the taxonomy section, in front of Tracheophyta, it says "clade" where phylum should be 2607:EA00:200:500:49AE:2726:971C:293A (talk) 15:52, 22 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Change back to clade:

Treating Tracheophytes as a phylum is an unusual position. It encompasses groups traditionally treated as divisions (a rank in botany equivalent to the traditional zoological rank of phylum). Previous edit requests on 30 January 2023 and 11 February 2024 to change |rank= from clade were denied. Plantdrew (talk) 01:51, 24 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
