it is gametophyte!
Because the sporophyte grows out of the gametophyte.
Gametophyte is the main stage in moss and sporophyte is dependent on gametophyte.
The gametophyte has become smaller, and the sporophyte has become larger. To begin with main plant body was gametophytic and sporophyte was dependent on it. Later on, as the evolution progressed, both gametophyte and sporophyte became independent and ultimatly gametophyte became dependent on sporophyte.
In moss, where the sporophyte grows directly out of the top of the gametophyte.
the gametophyte is only a haploid while the sporophyte is only a dploid
it does not depending on the sporophyte generation, in fact the sporophyte itself that depending on the gametophyte generation -kayo93-
in mosses why is the sporophyte stage dependent on the gametophyte stage
Gametophyte is dominant in mosses.
The sporophyte generation carries its chromosomes as doubles. ... The spores then develop into the gametophyte generation. In most plants, the gametophyte is tiny compared to the sporophyte. As its name implies, the gametophyte generationproduces sex cells - sperm and eggs.
Angiosperms' and Gymnosperms' SPOROPHYTE generation is more dominant than it's GAMETOPHYTE generation.
Embryo sac is the female gametophyte of flowering plants. Situated in the flower. It is dependent on the sporophyte (what we call plant) for nutrition. here the gametophyte is reduced and sporophyte is dominant.In lower plants the female gametophyte is prominent and independent where it can photosynthesize. Usually it is called as a thallus. Here the sporophyte is reduced and the gametophyte is dominant.
In reference to the sporophyte and gametophyte, are the stages of the plant's life cycle thus being the same.
in the life cycle of a fern, the dominant and recognizable stage is the diploid sporophyte. the the younger sporophyte grows from the gametophyte.
Sporophytes reproduce with spores, while gametophytes reproduce sexuallyOf the two, it is the gametophyte is larger than the sporophyte.
The sporophyte is dominant.
Basically, plants have two stages in their life cycle, they can appear as a gametophyte or a sporophyte.
Both the sporophyte and gametophyte are free-living and homomorphic, and belong to Cladophora.
Egg being a gamete develops inside gametophyte
