Which plant has seed inside the fruit?
In most angiosperms, part of the flower develops into fruit, which protects the seeds inside them.
What is the difference between a flowering and nonflowering plant?
Flowering plants grow flowers and use seeds to reproduce, or make more plants like them. Nonflowering plants do not grow flowers, and use either seeds or spores, which are very tiny parts of a plant that can be used to reproduce, to grow more plants just like them.
What do Nonflowering plants produce?
Plants such as ferns and mosses are called nonflowering plants and produce spores instead of seeds. There is also another group called the Fungi, that include mushrooms, and these also reproduce by spores.
What are the characteristics of a nonflowering plant?
Nonflowering plants such as mosses, ferns, fungi and algae reproduce with the help of spores since they do not have flowers nor do they make seeds. Instead, nonflowering plants produce spores that resemble seeds. This is also called asexual reproduction.
How does a non flowering plant produce seeds?
Non-flowering Plants. Conifers reproduce using their cones. Some cones are male and some are female. The male cones release pollen. This pollen is carried by the wind. If the pollen lands on a female cone, then the female cone will produce seeds. The hard scales of the cone protect the new seeds as they grow.
What do you call plants that do not have flowers?
However, some plants do not use flowers to reproduce. These plants are called non-flowering plants. There are two main groups of non-flowering plants. Plants that use spores to reproduce and plants that use seeds to reproduce.
Where does the fruit of a flower come from?
Fruits are typically derived from the ovaries of a flower and contain seeds. This means all parts of a plant that flower (including most culinary nuts and berries) are “fruits” and all non-flowering parts of plants are “vegetables”. Additionally, why some flowers do not bear fruit?
