1: A sporophyte is a plant in the spore-producing stage. The picture above is of a fern. The white-looking sorus contains many spores which help the fern reproduce when carried by the wind. | Date photographed: May 1, 2012 Location: WAMS | Fern

2: Moss is a plant that is dominate in the gametophyte stage. "Gametophyte" means that the plant produces gametes, otherwise known as sex cells (sperm and egg). | Location: WAMS Date photographed: May 1, 2012 | Moss

3: A vascular plant has long roots and can survive in dry areas. Someone could tell that this oregano plant is vascular because it is high off the ground and has long roots. Vascular plants contain vascular tissue and can grow in dry places. | Date photographed: April 30, 2012 Location: Duluth GA | Oregano

4: This picture is of some moss growing on a rock. Moss is a type of non-vascular plant; meaning that it does not contain vascular tissue and needs moist conditions to survive. Mosses have rhizoids (small root-like structures) instead of deep-growing roots. | Date photographed: April 30 2012 Location: Duluth GA | Moss

5: Date photographed: May 1, 2012 Location: WAMS | Ferns | Ferns are seedless plants. They reproduce by their spores which are carried by the wind to different locations. Spores are like seeds because they will sprout a new plant if they land in a place with proper conditions.

6: Date photographed: May 2, 2012 Location: Duluth, GA | These peppers are types of vegetables. Vegetables are edible plants that grow from seeds. | Banana pepper Habanero pepper
