Development of roots, stem and leaves are major land adaptations on land.


All plants have photosynthesis for generating food from minerals.
Land environment should provide support, mineral and nutrition supply and more light.
For this purpose roots is the first requirement of land plants.
Next comes strong stem. It gives vertical support against gravity.
Third is the arrangement of leaves to collect more and more light.
Flowering plants designed flowers to attract insects. First flowering plants are terrestrial.
