Also, what is the function of the Strobilus?
The spirally arranged sporophyll of the strobilusbears the spores in their sporangium. These spores on germinationgive rise to the gametophytic generation. The strobilus isconsidered as a reproductive structure bearing spores.
One may also ask, what is difference between Sporangia and Sporangium? As nouns the difference between sporangia andsporangium is that sporangia is while sporangium is(botany|mycology) a case, capsule, or container in which spores areproduced by an organism.
Also to know, what is Sporangia in plants?
A sporangium (pl., sporangia) (modernLatin, from Greek σπόρος (sporos)'spore' + ?γγε?ον (angeion)'vessel') is an enclosure in which spores are formed. It can becomposed of a single cell or can be multicellular. Allplants, fungi, and many other lineages form sporangiaat some point in their life cycle.
Is Sporangium a Sporophyte or Gametophyte?
In sporophytes, it occurs in structures calledsporangia (sporangium is singular). Once spores areproduced in a sporangium, they are often released into theair. A single haploid spore will undergo mitosis, or cell divisionwithout a reduction in chromosome number, to become a multicellularhaploid gametophyte.
