How do gymnosperms reproduce?
Gymnosperms (meaning "naked seeds") are seed-bearing plants that don't produce flowers, instead they have male and female reproductive organs mostly in the form of cones. Their microsporophylls release pollen into the air to make available to the ovule, in the megasporophylls causing fertilization. Their seeds develop without a protective covering of ovary wall. Conifers (like pines, redwoods, and fir), gingkos, seed ferns, cycadeoids, and cycads are gymnosperms.

they are seed plants
Gymnosperms are any of a group of vascular plants that produce naked seeds (not enclosed in an ovary or fruit). They were formerly considered a class (Gymnospermae) of seed pl…ants, but are now considered polyphyletic in origin and divided into several divisions, four with surviving members typified by the cycadophytes, conifers, ginkgo, and ephedras. fern
Gymnosperm plants have both male and female reproductive organs. They depend on the wind for pollination. The male gametophyte cell lands on the female cell for fertilizat…ion.
it means to make more of.
Fruit nor Flowers.
Most gymnosperms have reproductive structures called cones. Cones are covered with scales. Most gymnosperms produce two types of cones: male cones and female cones. Usually, a… single plant produces both male and female cones. In some types of gymnosperms, however, individual trees produce either male cones or female cones. A few types of gymnosperms produce no cones at all.
Gymnosperm means naked cell
The gymnosperms are primarily conifers (cone bearing trees and shrubs) such as the spruce, pine and fir trees. They are non-flowering plants that produce seeds not encased in …any kind of carpel or fruit. The seeds form on the scales of the cone. Whether they form seeds asexually, or sexually (which I doubt, given the absence of a blossom and an ovary), I cannot say for sure. Perhaps someone else can add to this. just adding to this i do know that seeds were the first plants to reproduce using seeds

Conifers (like pines, redwoods, and fir), gingkoes, seed ferns, cycadeoids, and cycads are gymnosperms. Angiosperms have to undergo a process called pollination before they can reproduce. Angiosperms have male sex organs called stamens. On the end of the stamen is the anther. This is where pollen is made. The pollen has to be taken to the pistil or the female part of the flower. The pollen is left on the stigma at the end of the pistil. The stigma carries the pollen down a tube called the style to the ovary. this paper was made by tahze.v
Reproduction is the process of reproducing organisms, "making/having babies."
does reproduce mean to give birth
Gymnosperms are plants that do not grow flowers or fruits. You can remember this because of "gym" in gymnosperm. You see, when I think of gym I do not think of flowers or …fruits, because you usually don't see flowers and fruit inside a gym, do you? Same way, you do not see seeds in gymnosperm plants!
