Ferns have sexual mode of reproduction.
Also ferns can only reproduce where there is sufficient moisture to transfer their motile male gametes to the archegonia for fertilization. Mainly ferns are reproduced by spores and at a time in the year they grow small spots under their leaves, known as sori. Each sorus has several sporangia where spores (micro & megaspores) are produced. Sexual reproduction in ferns takes place by spores in sporophytic phase and by reproductive organs i. e. anthredia and archegonia in gametophytic phase. Thus, the reproduction in ferns is achieved by alternation of generation.
Alternation of generation is the reproductive process in tree ferns. We know that there are two generations that alternate with each other- sporophyte and gametophyte.
Sporophyte is the asexual phase of the process in which leaves with sporangia are formed that contain the spores. These spores are dispersed by wind and when land in a suitable place (for ferns damp places are most suitable) they give raise to gametophyte generation.
Now gametophyte is the sexual phase. It's a small heart shaped plant which forms male and female gametes. Then the fusion of these two gametes takes place, it's what we call fertilization, and finally a zygote is formed which develops into a tree fern.
reproduction occurs in fern plant by producing spores
tree ferns reproduce through spores. they dont produce seeds or flowers or anything like that.
no, ferns have rhizomes
plants reproduce sexually
Ferns, algae, spikemosses, horsetails, and quillworts all reproduce asexually through the use of spores. Spores must risk landing on a favorable spot for germination in order to be successful.Note: fungi reproduce using spores, but they are not plants being neither plant nor animal. also fungi can produce both sexual and asexual spores.
The Maidenhair fern reproduces using germ cells called spores. The spores grow into small roots and then grow to be MaidenHair ferns.
they are both seedless plants so thay reproduce by spores called sporangia
no, ferns have rhizomes
Ferns reproduce by spores.
No, ferns do not have pollen. They reproduce with spores.
A tree fern is a seedless plant. All ferns are seedless plants. They reproduce by spores instead of seeds.
Yes, they do.
They both use spores!
Ferns need a lot of water to reproduce.
Mosses and ferns are plants which do not reproduce using seeds.
Bird's nest fern reproduce by producing spores.
allows ferns to reproduce in dry environments
