After showing the shortcomings of such a classification, we present, following an idea of Darwin's, the various movements in a renewed and observation-based perspective of the plant development. With this perspective, the different movements fit together logically, and in particular we point out that the mature reversible movements, such as the sensitive or circadian movements, are just partial regressions of the developmental ones.
