What Are the Types of Vascular Plants?

Vascular plants can be classified into two major types: gymnosperms or angiosperms. Gymnosperms are types of plants that reproduce by creating cones that contain their seeds. Angiosperms are types of vascular plants that create seeds in their fruits or flowers.

Vascular plants are a group of plants that have a network of vessels inside of them to transport water and other nutrients throughout their bodies. There are two types of these vessels: the phloem that transport nutrients and the xylem, which specifically transport water throughout the plant.

Samples of gymnosperms include pine, cedar and spruce trees. Angiosperms are made up of approximately 250,000 plants that can be further classified into two types, which are monocots and eudicots.
