In biology, higher level plants are distinguished by an ability to reproduce with seeds. Spore making plants, or lower level plants cannot be reproduced without a watery environment, while seed-reproducing plants can live in a much wider range of environments. These seed plants are generally divided into two groups – angiosperms and gymnosperms. In this article, we will examine the differences between them.
