Seedless Nonvascular Plants Plants are placed in two major groups nonvascular plants and vascular plants. Nonvascular plants lack roots and a system of tubes for transporting water and nutrients. They absorb water and nutrients directly from their environment. Vascular plants have a well-developed system of tubes for transporting materials throughout the plant’s body. Liverworts, mosses and hornworts grow in moist areas where they can absorb water and nutrients directly from their surroundings. Seed Plants Seed plants are vascular and use pollen and seeds to reproduce. There are two main groups of seed plants gymnosperms and angiosperms. Angiosperms An angiosperm is a owering plant that produces seeds enclosed in fruit. There are two major groups of angiosperms– monocots and dicots. Types of Angiosperms Ferns, club mosses and horsetails have vascular tissue and reproduce by releasing spores. Plants without Seeds Seedless Vascular Plants moss on a tree liverworts hornworts club mosses ferns horsetail Seed Structure Types of Gymnosperms A gymnosperm plant produces naked seeds which are not covered by a protective fruit.
