29.1 Characteristics of Plants
Plants, unlike algae, protect the embryo. This is an adaptation that facilitates a land existence.

The presence of vascular tissue and reproductive strategy are used to compare plants.
1. What adaptations do plants have to help them withstand dry conditions on land?

2. Describe the life cycle of plants.

29.2 Nonvascular Plants
The nonvascular plants, which are low-growing, lack a means of water transport and internal support.
3. What are the three basic types of nonvascular plants are where are they likely to live?

4. What life cycle generation is dominant in the bryophytes?
Essential Study Partner
Non-vascular Plants

Moss Life Cycle
29.3 Seedless Vascular Plants
Vascular plants have a system that not only transports water but also provides internal support.

In nonseed plants, spores disperse the species, and in seed plants, seeds disperse the species.
5. What life cycle generation is dominant in the seedless vascular plants?

6. Compared to nonvascular plants, how are seedless vascular plants better-adapted to life on land?

Vascular-seedless II

29.4 Seed Plants
In seed plants, a germinating pollen grain transports sperm to the egg.
7. What is double fertilization and where does it occur in seed plants?

8. How do seed plants benefit terrestrial animals?
