All plants that grow on land are descended from green algae, which tends to grow on damp surfaces like rocks and wood exposed to the elements. Learn more about the evolution of green algae into land plants, which scientists believe began around 410 million years ago.

Classification of Vascular, Nonvascular, Monocot & Dicot Plants

3. Classification of Vascular, Nonvascular, Monocot & Dicot Plants

Plants are a unique and essential organism. The two broad classifications of plants are vascular and nonvascular plants, however, there are several more. Explore what makes a plant monocot vs. dicot and a gymnosperm vs. an angiosperm in this lesson.

Nonvascular Plants: Examples, Definition & Characteristics

4. Nonvascular Plants: Examples, Definition & Characteristics

Nonvascular plants lack the system for delivering nutrients inside their bodies and most of these plants include mosses, liverworts, and hornworts. Learn about the definition and characteristics of nonvascular plants, some examples of nonvascular plants, and understand the importance of these plants to the ecosystem.

A Moss Life Cycle: Dominant Gametophyte

5. A Moss Life Cycle: Dominant Gametophyte

Mosses are small plants that may seem forgettable, but they serve many vital roles, such as habitats for certain organisms, a biological fuel source, and a decorative part of flower arrangements. Learn about the life cycle of mosses, including the haploid and diploid stages, and understand moss gametophytes.

A Fern Life Cycle: Plant Reproduction Without Flowers or Seeds

6. A Fern Life Cycle: Plant Reproduction Without Flowers or Seeds

Ferns are able to reproduce without using seeds. We will look at how ferns reproduce as well as the pattern of alternating between diploid and haploid life stages.
