How are angiosperms and gymnosperms related?

1 Answer

The angiosperm has evolved from gymnosperm by closing the ovule in ovary.


  1. The angiosperm is a advance group than the gymnosperms. Naked ovules in the gymnosperms are enclosed into the ovary in angiosperms. This advancement helps the survival and dispersal of seeds to the remote places.
  2. The vascular bundles area also more efficient in the angiosperms compared to the gymnosperms due to presence of efficient xylem vessels, tracheids, sieve tubes, companion cells etc. Thank you
