WHAT DOES PTERIDOPHYTE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

pteridophyte

Pteridophyte

Pteridophytes or Pteridophyta, in the broad interpretation of the term, are vascular plants that reproduce and disperse via spores. Because they produce neither flowers nor seeds, they are referred to as cryptogams. The group includes ferns, horsetails, clubmosses, spikemosses and quillworts. These do not form a monophyletic group, because ferns and horsetails are more closely related to seed plants than to lycophytes. Therefore, pteridophytes are no longer considered to form a valid taxon, but the term is still used as an informal way to refer to ferns and lycophytes, and some recent authors have used the term to refer strictly to the monilophytes.

Definition of pteridophyte in the English dictionary

The definition of pteridophyte in the dictionary is any plant of the division Pteridophyta, reproducing by spores and having vascular tissue, roots, stems, and leaves: includes the ferns, horsetails, and club mosses. In modern classifications these plants are placed in separate phyla.
