      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.
