Dictionary of botanic terminology - index of names

     
  Any of various plants, in which the structure is made up in part of vascular tissue or vessels (the phloem that transports sugar and the xylem that transports water and salts).  

They include the more highly evolved flowering plants (angiosperms), cone-bearing plants (gymnosperms, such as conifers, ginkgos, and cycads), and ferns and fern allies (spore-producing). Nonvascular plants include fungi, algae, lichens, mosses, and liverworts.
