Ferns

Ferns are plants that have stems, leaves, and roots like other vascular plants, but they do not produce flowers and seeds. Ferns reproduce by means of spores. Before the emergence of flowering plants, ferns dominated the land for millions of years. Nowadays, they are mostly valued for their attractive foliage.

How do ferns and mosses reproduce?

Ferns and mosses have a wonderfully interesting way of reproducing.

  • They produce spores (haploid cells) carrying only 1 set of chromosomes.
  • These spores undergo mitosis to form multicellular haploid structures.
  • These structures have a distinct sex.
  • This is called the gametophyte generation.
  • These multicellular haploid structures then produce sperm and eggs. (via mitosis)
  • The sperm is carried in rain or water.
  • The sperm fertilizes an egg atop the female gametophyte.
  • A zygote is formed. (diploid) carrying 2 sets of chromosomes.
  • Mitosis now occurs to form a multicellular diploid organism still on top of the haploid female gametophyte.
  • This is now called the sporophyte generation.
  • A mature sporophyte will then produce spores via meiosis and release them to start the cycle again.

So it's not just a simple case of mature diploid male fertilizes mature diploid female.

I found a link for a pic that may make it even easier to understand.

What are some differences between horsetails and ferns?

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.
