What is the difference between gymnosperms and angiosperms?

Answer

Gymnosperms and angiosperms have a few things in common, such as leaves, stems, pollen, and roots, but they differ in their flowering capabilities and seed production. AngiospermsGymnosperms and angiosperms are the two types of seed-producing plants. /p>

Angiosperms

Angiosperms are flowering plants that produce single-layered or double-layered seeds inside the plants' fruits or flowers. The seeds are not exposed without opening the fruit or flower. Angiosperms include all the various types of fruit trees and plants and all the species of flowers.

Gymnosperms

Gymnosperms do not flower, but they produce seeds of the "naked" variety. These seeds are exposed on the exteriors of plants. They often drop off or even fly away in the wind. Conifers, like pine and cypress trees, are gymnosperms. These particular trees produce seeds in the form of cones.
