3.Describe the features that distinguish ferns from other plants.Name two features that the ferns do not share with bryophytes.Name one feature the ferns share with angiosperms and gymnosperms, but not with bryophytes. They contain roots stems and leaves it has vascular tissue What gives ferns the ability to grow tall, unlike the bryophytes? How does height benefit the fern? The fern has vascular tissue which lets it grow tall the height keeps neighbors away 4.Describe the features that distinguish gymnosperms from other plants. They have no flowers or fruits
Name the characteristic of gymnosperms that they share with ferns and angiosperms. Ferns are spore bearing mosses are nonvascular and ferns are vascular gymnosperms and angiosperms both bear seeds gymnosperms has their seeds in cones and angiosperms have their seeds in flowers. Name a characteristic of gymnosperms that they share only with angiosperms. They are both seed bearingSince gymnosperm seeds are ‘naked’, as in, they are not contained in fruit; they are typically very small and light. What do you think a likely mechanism of seed dispersal it? Wind and rain water runoff5.Describe the features that distinguish angiosperms from other plants. They are flowering plants and their seeds are in flowers Name the features that distinguish the angiosperms from bryophytes. They are seed producing and their seeds are in flowers Name the features that distinguish the angiosperms from ferns. Ferns are spore producers and angiosperms are flower producing Name the features that distinguish the angiosperms from gymnosperms. Gymnosperms have their seeds in cones and angiosperms have their seeds in flowersWhich of the other groups of plants are most similar to the angiosperms? gymnospermsAngiosperm seeds are often contained in fleshy fruit (like a peach or an acorn). What do you think a likely mechanism of seed dispersal is for these plants? Animals eating the fruit and depositing the seeds somewhere else6.Construct a timeline showing the order in which plant groups evolved. Multicellular life, eukaryotes, photosynthesis, single celled life, water
