Definition: A hadron is a composite particle made of quarks in a bound state.

Hadrons come in two classes: Baryons and Mesons. Baryons are fermions while mesons are bosons. Baryons are further divided into nucleons and hyperons. The most well known hadrons are the proton and the neutron, which are both types of nucleons.
