The closest algal relatives of land plants are _____.

charophyceans ( These green algae and plants share many homologous features.)

All of the following structures may be a part of a bryophyte’s life cycle except _____.

megaphylls ( Megaphylls are a type of branched leaf. Bryophytes do not have true leaves.)

Most bryophytes, such as mosses, differ from all other plants in that they _____.

lack vascular tissue ( The bryophytes generally lack vascular tissue, which all other plants have.)

In contrast to bryophytes, in vascular plants the dominant stage of the life cycle is the _____.

sporophyte ( The diploid sporophyte generation is dominant in vascular plants; in bryophytes the haploid gametophyte generation is dominant.)

During the Carboniferous period, forests consisting mainly of ____ produced vast quantities of organic matter, which was buried and later became coal.

ferns and other seedless plants ( These were the dominant plant types of the time.)
