If the multiple etymology scheme (boooo) is going to be used for this article, the nesting needs to be corrected. --Connel MacKenzie 05:49, 2 August 2005 (UTC)

A tree is also a plant. GerardM 17:25, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
The definitions were changed by someone trying to combine definitions that were not combinable. The are, in fact, four distinct definitions of "plant" that are used in biology (which I had put in), but have been collapsed into three definitions with changes to the meanings. A revert would fix this. --EncycloPetey 01:33, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Replaced "large piece of machinery" definition.[edit]

I have replaced the definition "A large piece of machinery, such as used in earthmoving or road construction". My family owned this machinary when I was younger, and it was listed in the phone book as "plant hire". I also pass a lot of contruction on my way to work, and it is signposted "plant crossing" etc.--Dmol 22:11, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

What you have done is to delete a valid definition found in most major dictionaries and replace it with one that has no support at all. Please do not delete valid definitions or you will be blocked. --EncycloPetey 22:13, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
My last edit DID NOT replace a valid definition as you put it. My last edit added another definition that I have used all my life and is easily verifiable. Please leave it, or if you feel it is still not valid, put it in RFV. There is no doubt in my mind that it would pass.--Dmol 23:39, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Here is your last edit [1]. You removed a definition. I pointed this out on your talk page and here, yet you persist in deleting content. Please do not do that again. --EncycloPetey 23:56, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
