Kingdom Plantae - Kingdoms Slideshow

Examples of complex species from the plant kingdom

The next set of plants in our show has developed the ability to produce seeds. Gymnosperms such as conifers and cycads produce naked seeds. Angiosperms that include all flowering plants are able to produce seeds with one or two seeds coats.

Conifers produce cones that hold seeds until they are ready to release into the wind. They are able to sexually reproduce when wind spreads pollen to neighboring cones. Flowering plants use a variety of methods to reproduce. While some species use wind, many others rely on insects to spread pollen from one flower to another. Some species are so specialized that they can only be pollinated by one species of insect. If that insect is not around, the plant species will eventually become extinct.
