    What are Pteridophytes? Are they cryptogams? What type of plants are they?

    Pteridophytes are the plants which can be best described as the vascular cryptogams. Vascular cryptogams are those cryptogams (seedless plants) that have a well developed conducting system (vascular system). The term Pteridophyte is formed from “Pteron” (feather) + “Phyte” (plant), which means plants having feather like fronds (leaves). Pteridophytes reproduce by the means of spores. Ferns are the best examples of Pteridophytes.

    Thanks, very explanatory definition of Pteridophytes. Also, I liked the way each term in the post has been defined for a layman.
