8.2 Plants Without Seeds


Nonvascular plants

Nonvascular Plants

  • Do not grow tall

    • Do not have roots, stems or leaves

  • Live in moist areas

    • Absorb water directly from environment

    • Sperm cells swim to egg cells

  • Only 3 major groups

    • Mosses

    • Liverworts

    • Hornworts


Mosses

Mosses

  • Grow in damp, shady spots

  • Rhizoids – thin, rootlike structures that anchor the moss and absorb water and nutrients from the soil


Liverworts

Liverworts

  • Often grow on rocks by a stream

  • Leaf-like structures resemble a human liver


Hornworts

Hornworts

  • Usually live in moist soil, mixed in with grass

  • Sporophytes look like horns


Seedless vascular plants

Seedless Vascular Plants

  • First types of vascular plants

  • Do not have seeds

    • Reproduce with spores

  • Can grow tall

  • Must grow in moist surroundings

    • Must be enough water for fertilization to occur

  • 3 Main types

    • Ferns

    • Horsetails

    • Club Mosses


Ferns

Ferns

  • Fronds – fern leaves

  • Spores are spread by wind and water

    • Will grow into plant if it lands in moist, shaded soil


Horsetails

Horsetails

  • Jointed stems

  • Stems contain silica, a gritty substance also in sand

  • Prefer to grow in sandy soil

  • Considered a nuisance weed, because it easily regrows after being pulled out


Club mosses

Club Mosses

  • NOT mosses

  • Looks like a small pine tree

    • Ground pine

  • Typically grow near streams
