  1. What are some examples of nonvascular, non-seed plants?
    • Bryophytes=mosses
    • Hepatophytes=liverworts
    • Anthocerohytes=hornworts
  2. True or False: Nonvascular plants are usually at least a foot or two tall
    False, the are generally no more than a few inches tall
  3. True of False: It is common to find nonvascular plants in hot, dry habitats
    False, they live in cool, moist habitats
  4. Since nonvascular plants lack vascular tissue, what processes do they use to transport food, water, etc.?
    Osmosis & Diffusion (the movement of molecules from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration)
  5. What do nonvascular plants lack?
    Vascular tissue
  6. When a spore germinates, what does it become?
    A male or female gametophyte
  7. When do spores germinate?
    When conditions are favorable
  8. What is a haploid (n) reproductive cell, produced by meiosis, and can withstand harsh environmental conditions?
  9. How do non-seed plants reproduce?
  10. What are the two types of seed plants, that we mostly think of when we hear "plants"?
    Conifers and Anthophytes
  11. What are the 5 divisions of vascular, seed plants?
    Cycads, Gnetophytes, Ginkgos, Conifers, Anthophytes (flowering plants)
  12. What are the 3 divisions of vascular, non-seed plants?
    Club mosses, Horsetails, and Ferns
  13. What are the 3 divisions of nonvascular, non-seed plants?
    Mosses, Liverworts, and Hornworts
  14. True of False: Seed plants are only vascular
  15. True of False: Non-seed plants are only nonvascular
    False, they can be vascular and nonvascular
