5 differences between Bryophyta and Pteridophyta

Bryophta Plant body is either leafy or thalloid.The cells in plant body are haploid.Vascular tissue like xylem and phloem absent.In life cycle the gametophyte is dominant. Sporophytic phase completely depends upon gametophyte. Pteridophyta Plant body is differentiated into root, stem and leaves.The cells in plant body are diploid.Vascular tissue like xylem and phloem present. In life cycle the sporophyte is dominant.. Sporophytic phase is independent and autotrophic
