alternation of generations A reproductive cycle in which the asexual reproductive stages give rise to sexual reproductive stages that, in turn, give rise to asexual reproductive stages
seedless vascular plant A plant that has tissues that conduct water and other materials but does not reproduce by forming seeds, such as ferns, club mosses, and horsetails
seed plant A vascular plant that produces seeds through sexual reproduction, such as angiosperms and gymnosperms
