Chapter 23: Plant Evolution Invading the Land Cyanobacteria were probably the first to spread into and up freshwater streams Later, green algae and fungi made the journey together Every plant is descended from species of green algae Setting the Stage for Plants Earth s atmosphere was originally oxygen free Ultraviolet radiation bombarded the surface Photosynthetic cells produced oxygen and allowed formation of a protective ozone layer The Plant Kingdom Nearly all are multicelled Vast majority are photoautotrophs Energy from sun Carbon dioxide from air Minerals dissolved in water Fig. 23-2, p.372 Charophytes Fig. 23-3, p.372 Nonvascular Plants Bryophytes Fewer than 19,000 species Three groups Liverworts Hornworts Mosses Vascular Plants Majority of plants Have internal tissues that carry water and solutes Two groups Seedless vascular plants Seed-bearing vascular plants Seedless Vascular Plants Arose during the Devonian Produce spores but no seeds Four main groups Whisk ferns Lycophytes Horsetails Ferns Seedless Vascular Plants Fig. 23-4a, p.372 Seedless Vascular Plants Fig. 23-4b, p.372 Seedless Vascular Plants Fig. 23-4c, p.373 Seed-Bearing Vascular Plants Gymnosperms arose first Cycads Ginkgos Gnetophytes Conifers Angiosperms arose later Monocots Dicots Seed- Bearing Vascular Plants Archaeanthus linnenbergeri Fig. 23-4d, p.373 Plant Evolution Gondwana 420 mya 360 mya Bryophytes (liverworts) appear by 475 mya. Origin of earliest seedless vascular plants, in Silurian. Bryophytes diversify. Lycophytes, horsetails, ferns undergo early adaptive radiations. By 360 mya, seed plants evolve. Vast swamp forests; bryophytes, tree-size lycophytes, horsetails, ferns dominate. origin of conifers late in the Carboniferous. Ordovican Silurian Devonian Carboniferous Fig. 23-5a, p.373 Plant Evolution Pangea 240 mya 65 mya Origin of ginkgos, cycads. Conifers diversify. Extinction of most lucophytes and horsetails by end of Permian Ferns, cycads, conifers undergo adaptive radiations; by start of Cretaceous, conifers the dominant trees. Origin of flowering plants by the early Cretaceous. Rapid adaptive radiations and to dominance in nearly all habitats on land.

Cannabis sativa is source of marijuana Coca leaves are used to produce cocaine Toxic plant alkaloids, such as henbane and belladona, have been used as poisons and as medicine Deforestation Deforestation is the mass removal of all trees from large tracts for logging, agriculture, and grazing Greatest in Brazil, Indonesia, Colombia, and Mexico Sustainable development Deforestation Fig b, p.389
