gametophyte: The gamete-bearing individual or phase in the life cycle of a plant having alternation of generations
sporophyte: The spore-producing individual or phase in the life cycle of a plant having alternation of generations
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.
In reference to the sporophyte and gametophyte, are the stages of the plant's life cycle thus being the same.
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 the life cycle of a fern, the dominant and recognizable stage is the diploid sporophyte. the the younger sporophyte grows from the gametophyte.
Egg being a gamete develops inside gametophyte
Sporophytes reproduce with spores, while gametophytes reproduce sexuallyOf the two, it is the gametophyte is larger than the sporophyte.
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.
In most plants, the sporophyte generation is dominant. In fern, for example, the fern itself is the sporophyte. This organism produces spores that fall to the substrate below and grow into a separate organism called a gametophyte. The gametophyte produces sperm and eggs in order to produce a new sporophyte which grows out of the gametophyte's body, destroying it. It is important to note that the gametophyte is haploid and the sporophyte is dploid.
It will divide to form the female gametophyte.
Gametophyte is the sexual form of a plant in alternation of generations. Sporophyte is the form of a plant that produces spores in alternation of generations.
the gametophyte stage begins with meiosis and the sporophyte stage begins with fertilization.
The chromosome compliment of a gametophyte is a sporophyte.
