• Gymnosperms are vascular plants that produce seeds in cones.
  • Examples include conifers such as pine and spruce trees.
  • The gymnosperm life cycle has a dominant sporophyte generation.
  • Pollination occurs when pollen is transferred from a male to female cone.
  • Zygotes develop into embryos inside seeds, from which the next generation grows.
  • If the seed germinates, it may grow into a mature sporophytes tree, which repeats the cycle.
  • Create your own cycle diagram to represent the life cycle of a Gymnosperm.
