The taxonomy within a given phylum is also examined by looking at the difference of composition between species of the same phylum. In this experiment the Coniferophyta, which include the conifers, and Anthophyta, which include the flowering plants are to be studied. They are both characterized by their “seed habit.”

The pine branch occupied by pollen and ovulate cones will be observed. The phylum Anthophyta refers to the flowering plants.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
