What is the primary difference between the seeds of conifers and anthophytes?
Anthophyte seeds are encased in fruits; conifer seeds are produced on cones.
Why are seeds an important structural adaptation? What plant divisions produce seeds? Which plant divisions do not produce seeds?
Seeds protect and supply food for the embryo and aid in dispersal. Seed: Cycadophyta, Gnetophyta, Ginkgophyta, Coniferophyta, and Anthophyta; non-seed: Anthocerophyta, Hepaticophyta, Bryophyta, Psilophyta, Lycophyta, Arthrophyta, and Pterophyta.
What structural adaptation allows pterophytes to grow larger than bryophytes?
Ferns have vascular tissues that transport water and provide support.
Compare and contrast anthophytes and anthocerophytes.
Both show alternation of generations and are land plants. Anthocerophytes are non-seed, nonvascular plants; anthophytes are vascular seed plants.
In which division would you expect to find apple trees? Why?
Anthophyta; They have flowers and fruit.
