How are pteridophytes different from the phanerogams?
The pteridophytes are vascular plants (plants with xylem and phloem) that neither flower nor produce seeds, hence they are called vascular cryptogams. Instead, they reproduce and disperse only via spores.
Phanerogamic plants are those having seeds. They comprise the gymnosperms and the angiosperms.
- They are seedless plants .
- Reproductive organs are inconspicous hidden reproductive organs .
- They have specialised tissues for the conduction of water .
- Their plant body is differentiated into root, stem and leaves .
- They are seed bearing plants .
- Reproductive organs are well - developed .
- They have vascular tissues .
- Plant body is well developed and advanced .
Pteridophytes have less differentiated reproductive organs but phanerogams have well differentiated reproductive organs.
Embryos are naked and known as spores in pteridophytes instead in phanerogams embryos are present inside the seeds...
