Plants have life cycles that alternate between two generations. In this cycle, the haploid gametophyte produces haploid gametes through mitosis. And when these haploid gametes fuse during fertilization, they form diploid zygotes. These zygotes then undergo mitosis resulting in the formation of a diploid sporophyte. These sporophytes will then produce haploid spores and the cycle starts again.
Which parts of the life cycles of bryophytes have haploid cells? Which parts have diploid cells?
