option 4

 

 

Reproduction in chlorophyceae -

Vegetative by fragmentation or fission.

Asexual by Zoospores.

Sexual by Isogamous to oogamous.

-

 

 

Bryophyta -

Non vascular terrestrial plants present mostly in moist places.

- wherein

Eg Riccia,Funaria,Anthoceros.

 

 

Thallophyta / Algae -

Chlorophyll - bearing, thalloid, avascular plants and are usually aquatic.

- wherein

Eg. Chlamydomonas, Volvox.

 

 

Diplontic life cycle -

Dominant photosynthetic phase is independent diploid sporophyte. Gametophytes are extremely reduced and are dependent on sporophyte.

- wherein

Eg. All gymnosperms and angiosperms,diatoms,some brown algae (Fucus and sargassum )

 

 In Equisetum gametophytes are rarely seen. Riccia (bryophyte) has less developed sporophyte. Volvox (Algae) exhibits oogamous type of sexual reproduction. In shine molds thick cell walls are present. In Grinkgol Gymnosperms gametophytes are dependent on sporophyte
