Abstract

This chapter covers the phylum of plants that dominates the worlds land surface, phylum Anthophyta (the angiosperms). The main features of their morphology, internal structure, nutrition and reproduction are described to help explain the basis of their success. We also consider some of their special adaptations to the Australian environment.
