Important Points to Remember about Pteridophytes

  1. Pteridophytes are (ferns and lycophytes) are free-sporing vascular plants that have a life cycle with alternating, free-living gametophyte and sporophyte phases that are independent at maturity. They mainly thrive in moist and shady places. Some also grow in sandy soils.
  2. There are four classes, namely: Psilopsida, Lycopsida, Sphenopsida, Pteropsida.
  3. Pteridophytes are better adapted to dry land than bryophytes because they have a vascular system for conducting water from the soil to aerial parts.
  4. Pteridophytes or Pteridophyta, are vascular plants that reproduce and disperse via spores. Because they produce neither flowers nor seeds, they are known as cryptogams.
  5. Pteridophytes are considered to be the first plants to be evolved on land.They are cryptogams, seedless and vascular in structure,
  6. Pteridophytic plant body consists of true roots, stem and leaves. They have Ability to develop Spores in sporangia. Sporangia are produced in groups on sporophylls. Sex organs of pteridophytes are multicellular.
  7. Besides being a lower plant, pteridophytes are economically very important. Dry fronds of many ferns are used as a cattle feed. Pteridophytes are also used as a medicine.
