In plants, it is a reproductive cycle in which a haploid, diploid, or ployploid phase produces gametes. These gametes after fusion or syngamy form a zygote that is diploid or polyploid, and this sporophyte develops to some point and produces meiospores. The meiospores develops into the gametophyte. 
  2. antheridium
