Mosses and Liverworts Simple plants with no true roots. Live in damp places as easily desiccated. Mosses have small stems and leaves are one cell thick. Liverworts have no stem, just small root hair cells on the underside of each leaf.
Ferns Simple plants but much bigger than mosses and liverworts. Have small roots, stems and leaves. Stems have transport tissue (xylem and phloem). Reproduce by dropping spores from underside of leaf.
Conifers Trees or shrubs with needle-like leaves. Reproduce by seeds rather than spores but in cones rather than in flowers. Evergreen E.g. Scot’s Pine, Spruce, Larch.
Flowering Plants Trees or shrubs that reproduce using seeds formed in flowers. Can be deciduous or evergreen. Some are “Monocots” e.g. daffodil, spider plant; some are “Dicots” e.g. rose, oak.
