    Gymnosperms are woody trees with cone like appearance. They bear no flowers, no fruits but bear seeds. The seeds are naked as they are not covered by the fruit wall.

    Examples: Pinus, Cycas and Cedrus trees

    Angiosperms consists of of herbs, shrubs and trees.

    The ovules are located within the ovary, so seeds are found enclosed within the fruit wall

    Eg: Coconut, Mango

    Similarities are

    1. In both case sporophyte is independent and it gets differentiated into root, stem and leaves

    2. Reproductive structures are special organs formed for that purpose alone

    3. The male gametes are not ciliated generally and are transferred to the egg by siphonogamy

    4. In both cases the megaspore is retained within the megasporangium and seeds are formed

    5. Secondary thickening takes place in both groups

    Both gymnosperms and angiosperms have vascular tissue and both produce seeds. However, the seeds of angiosperms are surrounded by the wall of the ovary of the flower which forms the fruit.

    both have seeds and pollen?

    Angiosperms and Gymnosperms are similar because they both have vascular tissue and both produce seeds. However, the seeds of angiosperms are surrounded by the wall of the ovary of the flower which forms the fruit, whereas gymnosperms do not possess this structure.

    The gymnosperms are a group of seed-producing plants that includes conifers, cycads, Ginkgo, and Gnetales. The term "gymnosperm" comes from the Greek word gymnospermos (γυμνόσπερμος), meaning "naked seeds", after the unenclosed condition of their seeds (called ovules in their unfertilized state). Their naked condition stands in contrast to the seeds and ovules of flowering plants (angiosperms), which are enclosed within an ovary. Gymnosperm seeds develop either on the surface of scales or leaves, often modified to form cones, or at the end of short stalks as in
