Mr. Chapman Biology 20. Classification of Plants. Three Types of Plants That We Will Discuss. Seedless , non-vascular plants Seedless , vascular plants Seed-bearing plants – all of them are vascular . Seedless, Non-vascular Plants. Also known as BRYOPHYTES.
Non-vascular PlantsAlso known as BRYOPHYTES
Despite the fact that they require an external source of water, bryophytes can often grow where other organisms can not, such as the harsh desert. They do this by entering a state of dormancy until a water source is available.
This ability of mosses makes them critical in colonizing dry, inhabitable lands and beginning the soil-making process.
Vascular PlantsClub Mosses and Ferns are seedless, vascular plants.
