3 What are five crucial adaptations that led the success of seed Plants? –Seeds –Reduced gametophytes –Heterospory –Ovules –Pollen

4 Seeds Seeds changed the course of plant evolution, enabling their bearers to become the dominant producers in most terrestrial ecosystems A seed consists of an embryo and nutrients surrounded by a protective coat

6 Heterospory: The Rule Among Seed Plants The ancestors of seed plants were likely homosporous, while seed plants are heterosporous Megasporangia produce megaspores that give rise to female gametophytes Microsporangia produce microspores that give rise to male gametophytes

7 Ovules and Production of Eggs An ovule consists of a megasporang ium, megaspore, and one or more protective integuments Megasporangium (2n) Megaspore (n) (a) Unfertilized ovule Integument Spore wall Immature female cone

8 Pollen and Production of Sperm Microspores develop into pollen grains, which contain the male gametophytes Pollination Pollen eliminates the need for a film of water and can be dispersed great distances by air or animals If a pollen grain germinates, it gives rise to a pollen tube that discharges two sperm into the female gametophyte within the ovule Seed coat (derived from integument) (c) Gymnosperm seed Embryo (2n) (new sporophyte) Food supply (female gametophyte tissue) (n) (b) Fertilized ovule(a) Unfertilized ovule Integument Immature female cone Spore wall Megasporangium (2n) Male gametophyte (within a germinated pollen grain) (n) Megaspore (n) MicropylePollen grain (n) Egg nucleus (n) Discharged sperm nucleus (n) Female gametophyte (n)

9 The Evolutionary Advantage of Seeds A seed develops from the whole ovule A seed is a sporophyte embryo, along with its food supply, packaged in a protective coat Seeds provide some evolutionary advantages over spores: –They may remain dormant for days to years, until conditions are favorable for germination –They may be transported long distances by wind or animals

10 Fig. 30-UN1 Nonvascular plants (bryophytes) Seedless vascular plants Gymnosperms Angiosperms Gymnosperms What are the four phyla of gymnosperms? Which phyla is the most biologically significant?

11 Concept 30.2: Gymnosperms bear “naked” seeds, typically on cones The gymnosperms have “naked” seeds not enclosed by ovaries and consist of four phyla: –Cycadophyta (cycads) –Gingkophyta (one living species: Ginkgo biloba) –Gnetophyta (three genera: Gnetum, Ephedra, Welwitschia) –Coniferophyta (conifers, such as pine, fir, and redwood)

12 Phylum Cycadophyta Individuals have large cones and palmlike leaves These thrived during the Mesozoic, but relatively few species exist today

13 Fig. 30-5a Cycas revoluta

14 Phylum Ginkgophyta This phylum consists of a single living species, Ginkgo biloba It has a high tolerance to air pollution and is a popular ornamental tree

17 Phylum Gnetophyta This phylum comprises three genera Species vary in appearance, and some are tropical whereas others live in deserts

18 Fig. 30-5e Ephedra

19 Fig. 30-5f Welwitschia

21 Phylum Coniferophyta This phylum is by far the largest of the gymnosperm phyla Most conifers are evergreens and can carry out photosynthesis year round

26 The Life Cycle of a Pine: A Closer Look Three key features of the gymnosperm life cycle are: –Dominance of the sporophyte generation –Development of seeds from fertilized ovules –The transfer of sperm to ovules by pollen The life cycle of a pine provides an example Animation: Pine Life Cycle Animation: Pine Life Cycle

28 Angiosperms Angiosperms are seed plants with reproductive structures called flowers and fruits They are the most widespread and diverse of all plants Nonvascular plants (bryophytes) Seedless vascular plants Gymnosperms Angiosperms

33 The Angiosperm Life Cycle The flower of the sporophyte is composed of both male and female structures Male gametophytes are contained within pollen grains produced by the microsporangia of anthers The female gametophyte, or embryo sac, develops within an ovule contained within an ovary at the base of a stigma Most flowers have mechanisms to ensure cross-pollination between flowers from different plants of the same species

34 A pollen grain that has landed on a stigma germinates and the pollen tube of the male gametophyte grows down to the ovary The ovule is entered by a pore called the micropyle Double fertilization occurs when the pollen tube discharges two sperm into the female gametophyte within an ovule

35 One sperm fertilizes the egg, while the other combines with two nuclei in the central cell of the female gametophyte and initiates development of food-storing endosperm The endosperm nourishes the developing embryo Within a seed, the embryo consists of a root and two seed leaves called cotyledons
