  1. Seedless Plants Mosses and Liverworts Ferns, Horsetails, and Club Mosses

  2. Mosses and Liverworts • Small • Live on bark, rocks, and soil • No vascular system • Must live in places that are wet • No true roots, stems, or leaves

  3. Mosses

  4. Liverworts

  5. Mosses and Liverworts • Live together in large groups • Covering soil or rocks in a mat of tiny green plants • Each moss has rhizoids (root-like structures) • Rhizoids help anchor the plant

  6. Importance of Mosses and Liverworts: • Usually the first plants to inhabit a new environment. • Form a thin layer of soil when they die. • They help hold the soil in place which prevents erosion. • Nesting material for birds. • Peat moss can be burned as fuel.

  7. Ferns, Horsetails, and Club Mosses: • Grow tall • Have vascular systems

  8. Ferns

  9. Ferns • Can grow almost anywhere. • Have an underground stem called a rhizome. • Leaves are called fronds.

  10. Horsetails

  11. Horsetails • Small vascular plants. • Grow less than 1.3 meters tall. • Grow in wet, marshy places. • Stems are hollow and contain cilia. • Pioneers used them to scrub pots and pans.

  12. Club Mosses • 25 cm tall. • Grow in woodlands. • Unlike other mosses, they have vascular tissue.

  13. Importance of Seedless Vascular Plants • Help form soil when they die. • Also hold soil in place to prevent erosion. • Ferns serve as house plants. • Some are cooked and eaten. • Formed coal.
