They are very similar in many ways (both show rhizomatous growth) Their main differences is that horsetails have highly reduced leaves (whereas ferns have large, well-developed fronds); horsetails show a unique type of growth where the stems are jointed; and ferns carry their spores on the back of their leaves in sori, whereas horsetails carry their spores in strobili, which are borne on the tip of stems.

Yes. There are groups of vascular seedless plants. They include things like ferns, club mosses (but not mosses), and horsetails.


Conifers were the dominant trees during the Jurassic. Some types that existed at the time include Auracaria in the Southern Hemisphere and Sequioa in China. There were also cycads and gingkoes. Other plants include ferns, seed ferns, horsetails, and mosses.


Most vascular plants use seeds as a means of reproduction. However, ferns and other plants (some vascular) belonging to the group Pteridophyta reproduce by using spores, an ancient but useful method of reproduction.


Herbivorous dinosaurs ate plants. Plants that coexisted with dinosaurs include conifers, such as Auracaria and even Sequoia, cycads, ginkgoes, ferns, seed ferns, horsetails, and, toward the end of the Mesozoic, some flowering plants, including palms and primitive grasses.

Mosses are nonvascular while ferns are vascular. And mosses don't have vascular tissue. Ferns have vascular tissue (xylem, phloem) and also true roots, stems, and leaves Ferns have waxy covering (cuticle) to prevent water loss. They have lignin and cellulose in cell walls. In ferns long lived spores prevent against dessication (drying out). Ferns have stomata and guard cells to regulate gases exchange. Mosses: lack all of those characteristics. ferns are nonflowering plants which don't produce fruits and seeds.


Some species of ferns are ladder ferns,bird's nest ferns and royal ferns.


Non-vascular plants are those that do not have a true vascular system like other plants (they have no xylem and phlome vessels). These include groups of plants such as: Horsetails, Club Mosses and Ferns.

Stegosaurus fossils come from the Morrison Formation in the western USA and date to between 155 and 150 million years ago. Some have recently been found in Portugal from the same time period. At that time, the area was a semi-arid subtropical plain with distinct wet and dry seasons. Near rivers, there were forests of conifers, cycads, ginkgoes, ferns, and horsetails. Further from the rivers there were open areas covered in ferns with scattered trees.
