Abstract

In this chapter we introduce you w the characteristics shared by all land plants and the phyla that include rnosses and liverworts, ferns, and gymnosperms (cycads and conifers). We describe how the morphology and life cycle of each group determines its interactions with the environment, as well as the diversity of each group in Australia and its conservation status.
