1How do vascular plants differ from non vascular plants Vascular system (TUBES) for water transportGrow tallLive in dry areasNon vascular plantsLack of tubes for water transportLow growing - short(no roots)Live in damp shady places
2Explain why vascular plants are better suited to life in dry areas Vascular plants are better suited to dry areas because the well developed vascular system quickly transports water & minerals throughout the plant
3Would you expect a tall desert plant to be a vascular plant? A tall desert plant would be vascular. Larger plants have a vascular system to transport water, minerals and food. This system also gives the plant support so that it can grow tall.
4What are the two major stages of a plants life cycle? The two major stages of the plant life cycle are: 1) the sporophyte stage 2) the gametophyte stage
5Life cycle of a plant (sperm cell + egg cell = zygote) Sperm cell & egg cell fertilize, become a zygote(sperm cell + egg cell = zygote)Zygote becomes a sporophyteSporophyte produces spores spores develop gametophyteGametophyte produce sperm cells & egg cellsProcess repeats
