Phylogenetic classification systems
based on evolutionary relationships
between the various organisms. This
assumes that organisms belonging to
the same taxa have a common
ancestor.
Numerical Taxonomy is carried out using computers is based on all observable
characteristics. Number and codes are assigned to all the characters and the data are then
processed. In this way each character is given equal importance and at the same time
hundreds of characters can be considered.
Cytotaxonomy is based on cytological information like chromosome number, structure,
behavior.
Chemotaxonomy uses the chemical constituents of the plant to resolve confusions.

ALGAE
 Algae are mostly aquatic, some being
terrestrial also.
 A few algae grow on other plants.
 They may be small, unicellular, microscopic like
Chlorella (non-motile), Chlamydomonas
(motile) or multicellular unbranched
filamentous like Spirogyra and Ulothrix, or
branched filamentous like Chara or colonial
forms like Volvox or huge macro•scopic such as
sea weeds which measure more than 60 meters
in length. e.g. Sargassum

ALGAE
 At least a half of the total carbon dioxide fixation on earth is carried out by algae
through photosynthesis
 Being photosynthetic they increase the level of dissolved oxygen in their immediate
environment.
 They are of paramount importance as primary producers of energy-rich
compounds which form the basis of the food cycles of all aquatic animals.
 Many species of Porphyra, Laminaria and Sargassumare among the 70 species of
marine algae used as food.
 Certain marine brown and red algae produce large amounts of hydrocolloids
(water holding substances), e.g., algin(brown algae) and carrageen (red algae) are
used commercially
 Agar, one of the commercial products obtained from Gelidium and Gracilaria are
used to grow microbes and in preparations of ice-creams and jellies.
 Chlorella and Spirullina are unicellular algae, rich in proteins and are used as food
supplements.

Chlorophyceae (green algae)
 They are usually grass green due to the dominance of pigments chlorophyll a and b.
 The pigments are localised in definite chloroplasts.
 The chloroplasts are of different shapes; discoid, plate-like, reticulate, cup-shaped, spiral
or ribbon-shaped in different species.
 Most of the members have one or more storage bodies called pyrenoids located in the
chloroplasts. Pyrenoids contain protein besides starch. Some algae may store food in the
form of oil droplets.
 Green algae usually have a rigid cell wall made of an inner layer of cellulose and an
outer layer of pectose.
 Vegetative reproduction usually takes place by fragmentation or by formation of different
types of spores.
 Asexual reproduction is by flagellated zoospores produced in zoosporangia.
 The sexual reproduction shows considerable variation in the type and formation of sex cells
and it may be isogamous, anisogamous or oogamous.
 The common forms are Ectocarpus, Dictyota, Laminaria, Sargassumand Fucus.
z
ALGAE
Phaeophyceae (brown algae)
 The members of phaeophyceae or brown algaeare found primarily in marine habitats. They
show great variation in size and form.
 They range from simple branched, filamentous forms [Ectocarpus] to profusely branched
forms as represented by kelps, which may reach a height of 100 metres. They possess
chlorophyll a,c, carotenes and xanthophylls,
 They vary in colour from olive green to various shades of brown depending upon the
 amount of the xanthophyll pigment, fucoxanthin present in them.
 Food is stored as complex carbohydrates, which may be in the of laminarin or mannitol.
The vegetative cells have a cellulosic wall dually covered on the outside by a gelatinous
coating of algin
 Vegetative reproduction takes place by fragmentation.
 Asexual reproduction in most brown algae is by biflagellate zoospores that are pear-
 shaped and have two unequal laterally attached flagella.
 Sexual reproduction may be isogamous, anisogamous or oogamous.
 The common forms are Ectocarpus, Dictyota, Laminaria, Sargassumand Fucus.
z
ALGAE
Rhodophyceae (red algae)
 The members of rhodophyceae are commonly called red algaebecause of the
 predominance of the red pigment, r-phycoerythrin in their body.
 Majority of the red algae are marine with greater concentrations found in the warmer
areas.
 The red thalli of most of the red algae are multicellular.
 The food is stored as floridean starch which is very similar to amylopectin and glycogen in
structure.
 The red algae usually reproduce vegetatively by fragmentation.
 They reproduce asexually by non-motile spores and sexually by non-motile gametes.
 Sexual reproduction is oogamous and accompanied by complex post fertilisation
developments.
 The common members are: Polysiphonia, Porphyra, Gracikma and Gelidium.

Divisions of Algae and their Main Characteristics
z
BRYOPHYTA
Mostly terrestrial plantswhich depend on
external water for fertilization and
completion of their life cycle.
Hence they are called `amphibian
plants'
Grow in shady and moist places such
as moist walls, damp rocks, moist soil and
on decaying logs.
They show thalloid plant body which
is not differentiated into root, stem
and leaves.
In Bryophytes true roots are absent but
rhizoids are present.
Rhizoids are unicellular in liverworts,
while multicellular in mosses.
They absorb water and minerals and also
help in fixation of thallus to the substratum.

BRYOPHYTA
z
BRYOPHYTA
GAMETOPHYTE SPOROPHYTE
The main plant body (thallus) of the bryophyte
is haploid.
The zygote produces a multicellular body called
a sporophyte.
It produces gametes, hence is called a
gametophyte
The sporophyte is not free-living but attached
to the photosynthetic gametophyte and derives
nourishment from it.
The sex organs in bryophytes are
multicellular.
Some cells of the sporophyte undergo
reduction division (meiosis) to produce
haploid spores.
The male sex organ is called antheridium.
They produce biflagellate antherozoids.
These spores germinate to produce
gametophyte.
The female sex organ archegonium is flask-
shaped produces a single egg.
Thus, the sporophyte is diploid, recessive
and partially dependent on gametophyte
The antherozoids are released into water
where they come in contact with archegonium.
An antherozoid fuses with the egg to produce
the zygote.
The gametophyte is the dominant, green,
haploid and independent phase.
z
Economic Importance of BRYOPHYTA
1. Some mosses provide food for herbaceous mammals, birds and other
animals.
2.Species of Sphagnum, a moss, provide peat that have long been used as
fuel, and because of their capacity to hold water as packing material for
trans- shipment of living material.
3. Mosses, along with lichens are the first organisms to colonise rocks and
hence, are of great ecological importance. They decompose rocks making
the substrate suitable for the growth of higher plants.
4. Since mosses form dense mats on the soil, they reduce the impact of
falling rain and prevent soil erosion

s)
The plant body of a liverwort is thalloid, e.g., Marchantia .The
thallus is dorsiventral and closely appressed to the substrate. The
leafy members have tiny leaf-like appendages in two rows on the stem-
like structures.
Asexual reproduction in liverworts takes place by fragmentation of
thalli, or by the formation of specialised structures called gemmae
(sing, gemma). Gemmae are green, multicellular, asexual buds, which
develop in small receptacles called gemma cups located on the thalli
(see diagram). The gemmae become detached from the parent body
and germinate to form new individuals.
During sexual reproduction, male and female sex organs are
produced either on the same or on different thalli. The sporophyte is
differentiated into a foot, seta and capsule. After meiosis, spores
are produced within the capsule. These spores germinate to form
free-living gametophytes.

The gametophyte which consists of two stages. The first stage is the protonema stage,
which develops directly from a spore. The second stage is the leafy stage, which develops
from the secondary protonema as a lateral bud.
They consist of upright, slender axes bearing spirally arranged leaves. They are attached
to the soil through multicellular and branched rhizoids. This stage bears the sex
organs.
Vegetative reproduction in mosses is by fragmentation and budding in the secondary
protonema.
In sexual reproduction, the sex organs antheridia and archegonia are produced at the
apex of the leafy shoots. After fertilisation, the zygote develops into a sporophyte,
consisting of a foot, seta and capsule.
The sporophyte in mosses is more elaborate than that in liverworts. The capsule contains
spores. Spores are formed after meiosis. The mosses have an elaborate mechanism of
spore dispersal. Common examples of mosses are Funaria, Polytrichum and
Sphagnum.

The first vascular plants and the first successful terrestrial
plants with true roots, stem and leaves but no flowers
fruits and seeds
Called as VASCULAR CRYPTOGAMS
The Pteridophytes include horsetails and ferns.
The Pteridophytes are terrestrial, small, either annual or
perennial, and grow luxuriantly in cool, moist and shady
places. e.g. ferns.
They may be aquatic(Azolla, Marsilea),
xerophytic(Equisetum)
epiphytic(Lycopodium) i.e. growing on
large trunks of trees
PTERIDOPHYTES

PTERIDOPHYTES
The primary root is short-lived and is soon replaced by
adventitious roots
Stem may be aerial or underground.
The leaves may be scaly (Equisetum), Simple
and sessile (Lycopodium) or
Large and pinnately compound (Ferns).
The leaves in pteridophyta are small(microphylls) as in
Selaginella or large(macrophylls) as in Ferns.
In pteridophytes, the xylem consists of only tracheids
and phloem consists of sieve cells only.
Secondary growth is not seen in
Pteridophytes dueto absence of cambium.

z
PTERIDOPHYTES
REPRODUCTION
The sporophyte shows asexual reproduction and produces spores by meiosis from
which the gametophyte develops.
The gametophyte is haploid,recessive but independent, and reproduces
sexually. Product of sexual reproduction, i.e. zygote produces diploid sporophyte.
Spores are produced in special multicellular structures called sporangia.The sporangia
are produced by leaf-like appendages called sporophylls.
In some cases,sporophylls may form distinct compactstructures called strobili
or cones(Selaginella, Equisetum). The sporangia produce spores by meiosis in spore
mother cells.
The spores germinate to give rise to inconspicuous, small but multicellular, free-living,
mostly photosynthetic thalloid gametophytes called prothallus.
z
PTERIDOPHYTES
REPRODUCTION
These gametophytes require cool, damp, shady places to grow.
The gametophytes bear male and female sex organs called antheridia and archegonia
Water is required for transfer of antherozoids - the male gametes released from the
antheridia, to the mouth of archegonium.
Fusion of male gamete with the egg present in the archegonium result in the
formation of zygote.
Zygote thereafter produces a multicellular well-differentiated sporophyte which is the
dominant phase of the pteridophytes. In majority of the pteridophytes, all the spores are of
similar kinds; such plants are called homosporous. Genera like Selaginella and Salvinia
which produce two kinds of spores, macro (large) and micro (small) spores, are known as
heterosporous. The megaspores and microspores germinate and give rise to female
and male gametophytes, respectively. The female gametophytes in these plants are retained
on the parent sporophytes for variable periods. The development of the zygotes into young
embryos take place within the female gametophytes. This event is a precursor to the seed
habit considered an important step in evolution

GYMNOSPERMS
Gymnosperms (gymnos : naked, sperma : seeds)
Most of the Gymnosperms are evergreen, perennial woody trees or shrubs.
The gymnosperms are plants in which the ovules are not enclosed by any ovary
wall and remain exposed, both before and after fertilisation.
They are non-flowering plants producing naked seeds (fruits are not produced).
Xylem has tracheids and phloem with sieve cells.
z
GYMNOSPERMS
The plant body i.e. sporophyte is differentiated into
root, stem and leaves
ROOTS :
Specialized Coralloid roots of Cycas show association with
N2-fixing blue-green algae and
Pinus show association with endophytic fungi
called mycorrhizae
STEM :
The gymnospermic stem is mostly erect, aerial, solid and
cylindrical.
In Cycas, it is unbranched, while in Pinus, Cedrus and conifers it
is branched
LEAVES :
The leaves are dimorphic.
The foliage leaves are simple, needle like or pinnately
compound
Scale leaves are small, membranous and brown.
z
GYMNOSPERMS
 The gymnosperms are heterosporous; they
produce haploid microspores and megaspores.
 The two kinds of spores are produced within
sporangia that are borne on leafy structures called
sporophylls which are arranged spirally along an
axis to form lax or compact strobili or cones.
 The strobili bearing microsporophylls and
microsporangia are called male strobili or male
cone
 The microspores develop into a male gametophytic
generation which is reduced and is confined to only
a limited number of cells. This reduced gametophyte
is called a pollen grain. The development of pollen
grains take place within the microsporangia.
z
GYMNOSPERMS
 The cones bearing megasporophylls with
ovules are called female strobili or
female cone
 The male or female strobili may be
borne on the same tree (Pinus).
 However in Cycas, male cones and
megasporophylls are borne on different
trees. The megaspore mother cell is
differentiated from one of the cells of the
nucellus (nutritive tissue of the ovule).
The nucellus (megasporangia) is protected by envelopes and the composite
structure is called an ovule. The megaspore mother cell divides meiotically to
form four megaspores. One of the megaspores develops into a multicellular
female gametophyte that bears two or more archegonia or female sex organs.
The multicellular female gametophyte is also retained within megasporangium
z
GYMNOSPERMS
 Unlike bryophytes and pteridophytes, in gymnosperms the male and the female
gametophytes do not have an independent free-living existence.
 They remain within the sporangia retained on the sporophytes. The pollen grain is
released from the microsporangium. They are carried in air currents and come in
contact with the opening of the ovules borne on megasporophylls.
 The pollen tube carrying the male gametes grows towards archegonia in the ovules
and discharge their contents near the mouth of the archegonia.
 Following fertilisation, zygote develops into an embryo and the ovules into seeds.
These seeds are not covered.

They provide us with food, fodder, fuel, medicines and
several other commercially important products.
The plant body is differentiated into root, stem and
leaves. It has flowers, fruits and seeds. In
angiosperms, the seeds are
enclosed in fruits. Vascular tissues are well developed.
Xylem shows vessels or tracheae while phloem has
sieve tubes and companion cells.

ANGIOSPERMS
 The male sex organ in a flower is the stamen.
 Each stamen consists of a slender filament
with an anther at the tip.
 Within the anthers, the pollen mother cell
divide by meiosis to produce microspores
which matures into pollen grains.
 The female sex organ in a flower is the pistil.
 Pistil consists of a swollen ovary at its base, a
long slender style and stigma.
 Inside the ovary, ovules are present.
 Generally each ovule has a megaspore mother
cell that undergoes meiosis to form four
haploid megaspores. Three of them
degenerate and one divide to form the
embryo sac.
 Each embryo-sac has a three-celled egg
apparatus – one egg cell and two synergids,
three antipodal cells and two polar nuclei.
z
ANGIOSPERMS
 The polar nuclei eventually fuse to produce a diploid secondary nucleus.
 Pollen grain, after dispersal from the anthers, are carried by wind or various other
agencies to the stigma of a pistil. This is termed as pollination.
 The pollen grains germinate on the stigma and the resulting pollen tubes grow
through the tissues of stigma and style and reach the ovule.
 The pollen tubes enter the embryo-sac where two male gametes are discharged.
 One of the male gametes fuses with the egg cell (syngamy) to form a zygote.
 The other male gamete fuses with the diploid secondary nucleus to produce the
triploid primary endosperm nucleus (PEN).
 Because of the occurrence of two fusions i.e., syngamy and triple fusion, this event is
termed as double fertilisation, an event unique to angiosperms.
 The zygote develops into an embryo (with one or two cotyledons) and the PEN
develops into endosperm which provides nourishment to the developing embryo.
 The synergids and antipodals degenerate after fertilisation.
 During these events the ovules develop into seeds and the ovaries develop into fruit.

  • 3. z Artificial System Natural System Phylogenetic System Phylogenetic classification systems based on evolutionary relationships between the various organisms. This assumes that organisms belonging to the same taxa have a common ancestor. Numerical Taxonomy is carried out using computers is based on all observable characteristics. Number and codes are assigned to all the characters and the data are then processed. In this way each character is given equal importance and at the same time hundreds of characters can be considered. Cytotaxonomy is based on cytological information like chromosome number, structure, behavior. Chemotaxonomy uses the chemical constituents of the plant to resolve confusions. I N T R O D U C T I O N
  • 4. z ALGAE  Algae are mostly aquatic, some being terrestrial also.  A few algae grow on other plants.  They may be small, unicellular, microscopic like Chlorella (non-motile), Chlamydomonas (motile) or multicellular unbranched filamentous like Spirogyra and Ulothrix, or branched filamentous like Chara or colonial forms like Volvox or huge macro•scopic such as sea weeds which measure more than 60 meters in length. e.g. Sargassum
  • 5. z REPRODUCTION IN ALGAE Reproduction Vegetative Sexual Asexual Fragmentation (in filamentous forms) and cell division (in unicellular forms). By the formation of various types of non- motile o r motile spores. The most common being the zoospores. They are flagellated (motile) and on germination gives rise to new plants. formation and fusion of gametes. Isogamy : fusing gametes are same Anisogamy : fusing gametes are different Oogamy : fusing gametes are totally different, enough to be called as male and female gametes
  • 7. z ALGAE  At least a half of the total carbon dioxide fixation on earth is carried out by algae through photosynthesis  Being photosynthetic they increase the level of dissolved oxygen in their immediate environment.  They are of paramount importance as primary producers of energy-rich compounds which form the basis of the food cycles of all aquatic animals.  Many species of Porphyra, Laminaria and Sargassumare among the 70 species of marine algae used as food.  Certain marine brown and red algae produce large amounts of hydrocolloids (water holding substances), e.g., algin(brown algae) and carrageen (red algae) are used commercially  Agar, one of the commercial products obtained from Gelidium and Gracilaria are used to grow microbes and in preparations of ice-creams and jellies.  Chlorella and Spirullina are unicellular algae, rich in proteins and are used as food supplements.
  • 8. z ALGAE ALG AE Chlorophyce ae (green algae) Rhodophyceae (red algae) Phaeophycea e (brown algae) Chlorophyceae (green algae)  They are usually grass green due to the dominance of pigments chlorophyll a and b.  The pigments are localised in definite chloroplasts.  The chloroplasts are of different shapes; discoid, plate-like, reticulate, cup-shaped, spiral or ribbon-shaped in different species.  Most of the members have one or more storage bodies called pyrenoids located in the chloroplasts. Pyrenoids contain protein besides starch. Some algae may store food in the form of oil droplets.  Green algae usually have a rigid cell wall made of an inner layer of cellulose and an outer layer of pectose.  Vegetative reproduction usually takes place by fragmentation or by formation of different types of spores.  Asexual reproduction is by flagellated zoospores produced in zoosporangia.  The sexual reproduction shows considerable variation in the type and formation of sex cells and it may be isogamous, anisogamous or oogamous.  The common forms are Ectocarpus, Dictyota, Laminaria, Sargassumand Fucus.

  • 11. z Divisions of Algae and their Main Characteristics
  • 12. z BRYOPHYTA Mostly terrestrial plantswhich depend on external water for fertilization and completion of their life cycle. Hence they are called `amphibian plants' Grow in shady and moist places such as moist walls, damp rocks, moist soil and on decaying logs. They show thalloid plant body which is not differentiated into root, stem and leaves. In Bryophytes true roots are absent but rhizoids are present. Rhizoids are unicellular in liverworts, while multicellular in mosses. They absorb water and minerals and also help in fixation of thallus to the substratum.

Rhizoids are unicellular in liverworts, while multicellular in mosses. They absorb water and minerals and also help in fixation of thallus to the substratum.
  • 15. z BRYOPHYTA GAMETOPHYTE SPOROPHYTE The main plant body (thallus) of the bryophyte is haploid. The zygote produces a multicellular body called a sporophyte. It produces gametes, hence is called a gametophyte The sporophyte is not free-living but attached to the photosynthetic gametophyte and derives nourishment from it. The sex organs in bryophytes are multicellular. Some cells of the sporophyte undergo reduction division (meiosis) to produce haploid spores. The male sex organ is called antheridium. They produce biflagellate antherozoids. These spores germinate to produce gametophyte. The female sex organ archegonium is flask- shaped produces a single egg. Thus, the sporophyte is diploid, recessive and partially dependent on gametophyte The antherozoids are released into water where they come in contact with archegonium. An antherozoid fuses with the egg to produce the zygote. The gametophyte is the dominant, green, haploid and independent phase.
  • 16. z Economic Importance of BRYOPHYTA 1. Some mosses provide food for herbaceous mammals, birds and other animals. 2.Species of Sphagnum, a moss, provide peat that have long been used as fuel, and because of their capacity to hold water as packing material for trans- shipment of living material. 3. Mosses, along with lichens are the first organisms to colonise rocks and hence, are of great ecological importance. They decompose rocks making the substrate suitable for the growth of higher plants. 4. Since mosses form dense mats on the soil, they reduce the impact of falling rain and prevent soil erosion
  • 17. z Bryophyta Hepaticopsi da (Liverworts ) Bryopsid a (Mosse s) The plant body of a liverwort is thalloid, e.g., Marchantia .The thallus is dorsiventral and closely appressed to the substrate. The leafy members have tiny leaf-like appendages in two rows on the stem- like structures. Asexual reproduction in liverworts takes place by fragmentation of thalli, or by the formation of specialised structures called gemmae (sing, gemma). Gemmae are green, multicellular, asexual buds, which develop in small receptacles called gemma cups located on the thalli (see diagram). The gemmae become detached from the parent body and germinate to form new individuals. During sexual reproduction, male and female sex organs are produced either on the same or on different thalli. The sporophyte is differentiated into a foot, seta and capsule. After meiosis, spores are produced within the capsule. These spores germinate to form free-living gametophytes.
  • 18. z Bryophyta Hepaticopsid a (Liverworts) Bryopsi da (Mosse s) The gametophyte which consists of two stages. The first stage is the protonema stage, which develops directly from a spore. The second stage is the leafy stage, which develops from the secondary protonema as a lateral bud. They consist of upright, slender axes bearing spirally arranged leaves. They are attached to the soil through multicellular and branched rhizoids. This stage bears the sex organs. Vegetative reproduction in mosses is by fragmentation and budding in the secondary protonema. In sexual reproduction, the sex organs antheridia and archegonia are produced at the apex of the leafy shoots. After fertilisation, the zygote develops into a sporophyte, consisting of a foot, seta and capsule. The sporophyte in mosses is more elaborate than that in liverworts. The capsule contains spores. Spores are formed after meiosis. The mosses have an elaborate mechanism of spore dispersal. Common examples of mosses are Funaria, Polytrichum and Sphagnum.
  • 19. z The first vascular plants and the first successful terrestrial plants with true roots, stem and leaves but no flowers fruits and seeds Called as VASCULAR CRYPTOGAMS The Pteridophytes include horsetails and ferns. The Pteridophytes are terrestrial, small, either annual or perennial, and grow luxuriantly in cool, moist and shady places. e.g. ferns. They may be aquatic(Azolla, Marsilea), xerophytic(Equisetum) epiphytic(Lycopodium) i.e. growing on large trunks of trees PTERIDOPHYTES
  • 20. z PTERIDOPHYTES The primary root is short-lived and is soon replaced by adventitious roots Stem may be aerial or underground. The leaves may be scaly (Equisetum), Simple and sessile (Lycopodium) or Large and pinnately compound (Ferns). The leaves in pteridophyta are small(microphylls) as in Selaginella or large(macrophylls) as in Ferns. In pteridophytes, the xylem consists of only tracheids and phloem consists of sieve cells only. Secondary growth is not seen in Pteridophytes dueto absence of cambium. Plant Body
  • 21. z PTERIDOPHYTES REPRODUCTION The sporophyte shows asexual reproduction and produces spores by meiosis from which the gametophyte develops. The gametophyte is haploid,recessive but independent, and reproduces sexually. Product of sexual reproduction, i.e. zygote produces diploid sporophyte. Spores are produced in special multicellular structures called sporangia.The sporangia are produced by leaf-like appendages called sporophylls. In some cases,sporophylls may form distinct compactstructures called strobili or cones(Selaginella, Equisetum). The sporangia produce spores by meiosis in spore mother cells. The spores germinate to give rise to inconspicuous, small but multicellular, free-living, mostly photosynthetic thalloid gametophytes called prothallus.
  • 22. z PTERIDOPHYTES REPRODUCTION These gametophytes require cool, damp, shady places to grow. The gametophytes bear male and female sex organs called antheridia and archegonia Water is required for transfer of antherozoids - the male gametes released from the antheridia, to the mouth of archegonium. Fusion of male gamete with the egg present in the archegonium result in the formation of zygote. Zygote thereafter produces a multicellular well-differentiated sporophyte which is the dominant phase of the pteridophytes. In majority of the pteridophytes, all the spores are of similar kinds; such plants are called homosporous. Genera like Selaginella and Salvinia which produce two kinds of spores, macro (large) and micro (small) spores, are known as heterosporous. The megaspores and microspores germinate and give rise to female and male gametophytes, respectively. The female gametophytes in these plants are retained on the parent sporophytes for variable periods. The development of the zygotes into young embryos take place within the female gametophytes. This event is a precursor to the seed habit considered an important step in evolution
  • 24. z GYMNOSPERMS Gymnosperms (gymnos : naked, sperma : seeds) Most of the Gymnosperms are evergreen, perennial woody trees or shrubs. The gymnosperms are plants in which the ovules are not enclosed by any ovary wall and remain exposed, both before and after fertilisation. They are non-flowering plants producing naked seeds (fruits are not produced). Xylem has tracheids and phloem with sieve cells.
  • 25. z GYMNOSPERMS The plant body i.e. sporophyte is differentiated into root, stem and leaves ROOTS : Specialized Coralloid roots of Cycas show association with N2-fixing blue-green algae and Pinus show association with endophytic fungi called mycorrhizae STEM : The gymnospermic stem is mostly erect, aerial, solid and cylindrical. In Cycas, it is unbranched, while in Pinus, Cedrus and conifers it is branched LEAVES : The leaves are dimorphic. The foliage leaves are simple, needle like or pinnately compound Scale leaves are small, membranous and brown.
  • 26. z GYMNOSPERMS  The gymnosperms are heterosporous; they produce haploid microspores and megaspores.  The two kinds of spores are produced within sporangia that are borne on leafy structures called sporophylls which are arranged spirally along an axis to form lax or compact strobili or cones.  The strobili bearing microsporophylls and microsporangia are called male strobili or male cone  The microspores develop into a male gametophytic generation which is reduced and is confined to only a limited number of cells. This reduced gametophyte is called a pollen grain. The development of pollen grains take place within the microsporangia.
  • 27. z GYMNOSPERMS  The cones bearing megasporophylls with ovules are called female strobili or female cone  The male or female strobili may be borne on the same tree (Pinus).  However in Cycas, male cones and megasporophylls are borne on different trees. The megaspore mother cell is differentiated from one of the cells of the nucellus (nutritive tissue of the ovule). The nucellus (megasporangia) is protected by envelopes and the composite structure is called an ovule. The megaspore mother cell divides meiotically to form four megaspores. One of the megaspores develops into a multicellular female gametophyte that bears two or more archegonia or female sex organs. The multicellular female gametophyte is also retained within megasporangium
  • 28. z GYMNOSPERMS  Unlike bryophytes and pteridophytes, in gymnosperms the male and the female gametophytes do not have an independent free-living existence.  They remain within the sporangia retained on the sporophytes. The pollen grain is released from the microsporangium. They are carried in air currents and come in contact with the opening of the ovules borne on megasporophylls.  The pollen tube carrying the male gametes grows towards archegonia in the ovules and discharge their contents near the mouth of the archegonia.  Following fertilisation, zygote develops into an embryo and the ovules into seeds. These seeds are not covered. Gymnosperma e Cycadopsi da e.g.Cycas Zamia Coniferopsid a e.g. Pinus Sequoia Gnetopsida e.g. Gnetum Ephedr
  • 29. z ANGIOSPERMS They provide us with food, fodder, fuel, medicines and several other commercially important products. The plant body is differentiated into root, stem and leaves. It has flowers, fruits and seeds. In angiosperms, the seeds are enclosed in fruits. Vascular tissues are well developed. Xylem shows vessels or tracheae while phloem has sieve tubes and companion cells. Highly evolved plants, primarily adapted to terrestrial habitat. Wolffia is the smallest angiosperm, l mm in size and Eucalyptusgrows to over 100 meters. Most advanced division of the flowering plants
  • 30. z ANGIOSPERMS DICOTYLEDONAE MONOCOTYLEDONAE 2 cotyledons in the Embryo 1 cotyledon in the Embryo Tap root system Adventitious root system Stem is profusely branched Stem is unbranched Reticulate Venation Parallel Venation Flowers show tetramerous or pentamerous symmetry Flowers show trimerous symmetry Vascular Bundle is Conjoint, Collateral and open Vascular Bundle is Conjoint, Collateral and closed Secondary growth is found Secondary growth is absent
  • 31. z ANGIOSPERMS  The male sex organ in a flower is the stamen.  Each stamen consists of a slender filament with an anther at the tip.  Within the anthers, the pollen mother cell divide by meiosis to produce microspores which matures into pollen grains.  The female sex organ in a flower is the pistil.  Pistil consists of a swollen ovary at its base, a long slender style and stigma.  Inside the ovary, ovules are present.  Generally each ovule has a megaspore mother cell that undergoes meiosis to form four haploid megaspores. Three of them degenerate and one divide to form the embryo sac.  Each embryo-sac has a three-celled egg apparatus – one egg cell and two synergids, three antipodal cells and two polar nuclei.
  • 32. z ANGIOSPERMS  The polar nuclei eventually fuse to produce a diploid secondary nucleus.  Pollen grain, after dispersal from the anthers, are carried by wind or various other agencies to the stigma of a pistil. This is termed as pollination.  The pollen grains germinate on the stigma and the resulting pollen tubes grow through the tissues of stigma and style and reach the ovule.  The pollen tubes enter the embryo-sac where two male gametes are discharged.  One of the male gametes fuses with the egg cell (syngamy) to form a zygote.  The other male gamete fuses with the diploid secondary nucleus to produce the triploid primary endosperm nucleus (PEN).  Because of the occurrence of two fusions i.e., syngamy and triple fusion, this event is termed as double fertilisation, an event unique to angiosperms.  The zygote develops into an embryo (with one or two cotyledons) and the PEN develops into endosperm which provides nourishment to the developing embryo.  The synergids and antipodals degenerate after fertilisation.  During these events the ovules develop into seeds and the ovaries develop into fruit.

  • 37. z LIFE CYCLES Haplo-diplontic Diplontic Haplontic The dominant, photosynthetic phase in such plants is the free- living haploid gametophyte. This kind of life cycle is termed as Haplontic. •Many algae such as Volvox, Spirogyra diploid sporophyte is the dominant, photosynthetic, independent phase of the plant. This kind of life cycle is called as Diplontic Gymnosperms and Angiosperms Bryophytes and pteridophytes, interestingly, exhibit an intermediate condition (Haplo- diplontic); both phases are multicellular. However, they differ in their dominant
