What is the Sporophyte of a pine?

Pine trees are conifers (cone bearing) and carry both male and female sporophylls on the same mature sporophyte. Therefore, they are monoecious plants. Like all gymnosperms, pines are heterosporous, generating two different types of spores: male microspores and female megaspores.


Similarly, you may ask, why is a pine tree called a Sporophyte?

A sporophyte is a plant that has two different forms in its two life cycles — a haploid form with one set of chromosomes called a sporophyte, and a diplod form with two sets called a gametophyte (as it’s the form producing gametes).

Likewise, which generation is represented by the pine tree? 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. Both gametophytes and the next generation’s new sporophytes develop on the sporophyte parent plant.

Similarly, it is asked, what is the function of Sporophyte generation in pines?

The basic function of the sporophyte is to create spores – that much is known already. The spores, in turn, produce the gametophytes that give rise to the male and female gametes through the process of meiosis. Meiosis is the type of cell division that reduces the number of chromosomes in half.

Is a pine tree a haploid plant body?

A pine tree is a an angiosperm b a haploid plant body.
