Problem

1) Compare and contrast the location of the female gametophytes between gymnosperms and angiosperms. 


2) What is the difference between a microsporangium and a microsporophyll?


Solution

Gymnosperms are seed-producing non-flowering plants whose seeds are unenclosed or naked while angiosperms are seed-producing flowering plants whose seeds are enclosed within an ovary. In term of female gametophytes, gymnosperms contain females cones where female gametophytes develops while the female gametophytes of angiosperms develop within the ovule inside the ovary located at the base of the pistil of the flowers.
