  Division (biology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In biology, the equivalent of a phylum in the plant or fungi kingdom is called a division.
The main plant divisions, in the order in which they probably evolved, are the mosses (Division Bryophyta), the ferns (Division Filicophyta), the horsetails (Division Sphenophyta), the Cycads (Division Cycadophyta), the Ginkgo (Division Ginkgophyta), the conifers (Division Pinophyta), the Gnetophytes (Division Gnetophyta), and the angiosperms (Division Anthophyta).
Angiosperms are the flowering plants that now dominate the plant world (80% of all vascular plants are angiosperms).

 Centrioles - Counter Of Life
Experiments of recent years proved that the number of divisions allowed for the cell does not depend on the length of end sections of its chromosomes, telomer.
Therefore, ageing factors should be contained in cytoplasm, and if we recall that the age of cells is determined not by the time but by the number of cellular divisions, and the division process is directly connected with centrioles, then centrioles in particular are most logical to be considered the clock measuring cellular life.
According to Georgian researchers' hypothesis, the cells initially devoid of centrioles and cytoskeleton, or the cells where these structures appeared for the first time, cannot count their divisions and therefore are, firstly, immortal, and secondly, not specialized.
