In this regard, what happens when Sporangia dry out?
When the sporangia dry out, they break open,releasing the spores into the wind. Germination begins when a sporefalls in a place with proper conditions of heat andmoisture.
Beside above, what is one advantage that Spore throwing Ferns have over these ferns? Reproduction of ferns Ferns reproduce using spores rather thanseeds. Their spores are produced and stored in asporangium, which in many advanced species is protected byan indusium.
Also question is, what is the function of the annulus?
In leptosporangiate ferns, the annulus located onthe outer rim of the sporangium and serves in spore dispersal. Itconsists typically of a ring or belt of dead water-filled cellswith differentially thickened cell walls that stretches abouttwo-thirds around each sporangium in leptosporangiateferns.
How are fern spores dispersed?
Like all ferns, it reproduces throughspores, not seeds, which are dispersed by a varietyof methods, including water, gravity and animals, but the mostcommon method of fern spore dispersal is wind.
