Compare and contrast mosses and ferns.Mosses: The sporophyte

Compare and contrast mosses and ferns.Mosses: The sporophyte is dependent on the gametophyte. Ferns: The gametophyte is dependent on the sporophyte. Sporophyte is located near the tip of the plant, while the gametophyte is lower. Ferns: Have roots, stems and leaves in sporophyte stageCompare and contrast gymnosperms and angiosperms. Angiosperms have seeds that are enclosed within an ovary, while gymnosperms have no flowers or fruits, and have unenclosed seeds on the surface of scales or leaves. Compare and contrast seed plants and seedless plants. Another major difference between the spores of seedless plants and seeds is that the haploid spores of seedless plants are released by the parent and develop independently, whereas seeds develop within the parental sporophytic tissue. Seed plants have female spores and male spores.Explain the importance of vascular tissue. Vascular tissue is a complex conducting tissue, formed of more than one cell type, found in vascular plants. The primary components of vascular tissue are the xylem and phloem. These two tissues transport fluid and nutrients internally.What are tracheids? a type of water-conducting cell in the xylem which lacks perforations in the cell wall.Compare and contrast xylem and phloem.Xylem transports water and nutrients from roots to various parts of the plant. It is responsible for replacing water lost through transpiration and photosynthesis. Phloem translocates sugars made by photosynthetic areas of plants to storage organs like roots, tubers or bulbs.Explain the importance of seeds. Seed plants are cultivated for their beauty and smells, as well as their importance in the development of medicines. Plants are also the foundation of human diets across the world. Many societies eat, almost exclusively, vegetarian fare and depend solely on seedplants for their nutritional needs.Explain the evolutionary advantage of flowers.  Unlike bryophyte and fern spores, seeds contain a diploid embryo that will germinate into a sporophyte. Storage tissue to sustain growth and a protective coat give seeds their superior evolutionary advantage.Compare and contrast monocots and dicots.Monocots differ from dicots in four distinct structural features: leaves, stems, roots and flowers. But, the differences start from the very beginning of the plant’s life cycle: the seed. Within the seed lies the plant’s embryo. Whereas monocots have one cotyledon, dicots have two.Compare and contrast woody and herbaceous plants. These plants can be annual, biennial, or perennial plants. Although they have several minor differences, their main difference can be found in the type of stem they have. Woody plants have hard, woody stems, while herbaceous plants have soft, green ones.Contrast annuals, biennials and perennial plants.A biennial plant takes two years to complete it’s life cycle. It will germinate and grow, survive through one winter, and in the second year it will grow more, bloom, and die. Biennials are less common than both annuals and perennials
