"Modern botanical classification groups plants by sexual (reproductive) characteristics, but there are other ways to group plants. Native American tribes classify plants by directions of north, south, east, and west. The Cherokee further classify plants by their function — thus there are warrior plants such as brambles and poison ivy, and scout plants such as poplar and plantain." — Joyce A. Wardwell, The Herbal Home Remedy Book
