Thereof, do Lycophytes produce seeds?
Lycophytes. Lycophytes, also known as the 'fern allies', are a clade of vascular plants similar to ferns but have unique leaves called microphylls. They are primitive plants and lack seeds, wood, fruit and flowers. As with the ferns, lycophytes produce spores for reproduction and are both wind-pollinated and dispersed.
Beside above, do Lycophytes have swimming sperm? Like the bryophytes, ferns and fern allies are still restricted to moist habitats. Their flagellated sperm need a thin film of water to swim between the antheridium and the archegonium. And when the baby sporophyte grows up from the gametophyte, it is exposed to desiccation (drying up).
Beside this, are Lycophytes true leaves?
Lycophytes. The living lycophytes are widely distributed but reach their greatest species diversity in the tropics. The lycophytes are similar to the higher vascular plants—the gymnosperms and angiosperms—in having vascular tissue and true leaves, stems, and roots.
Do Lycophytes have cones?
While many lycophytes have their sporophylls scttered along their stem, most produce them in a strobilus, a cone-like structure consisting of many spore-producing leaves growing together in a tight cluster.
