Presentation on theme: "How do vascular plants differ from non vascular plants"— Presentation transcript:
1 How 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
2 Explain 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
3 Would 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.
4 What 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
5 Life 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
