  • 2. Marchantia polymorpha  Known as the common liverwort.  It is large and widely distributed, wi th species all over the world.
  • 3. Psilotum nudum  This is an up- close view of a whisk fern, a primitive vascular plant bearing 3- lobed sporangia. Organisms such as this were abundant 300 million years ago.
  • 4. Selaginella lepidophylla  Called the Resurrection Plant, this plant can turn from a dried up ball into a leafy green plant overnight by soaking in water. It is native to Arizona and Texas.
  • 5. Equisetum hyemale  This horsetail is a primitive vascular plant.  It is also called a scouring rush because the stems used to be used to clean pots and pans.
  • 6. Lycopodium clavatum  A club moss native to Oregon.  It has only one kind of spore, a condition termed homosporous
  • 7. Cycas rumphii  Commonly known as Queen Sago.  It is a small tree that grows about 10 m in height.  It is part of a species comples.
  • 8. Ginkgo biloba  Common name: Maidenhair tree  This is the only species of the Phylum Ginkgophyta.  It is a large tree that has deciduous fanlike leaves.  It is popular in cities for it tolerates pollution well.
  • 9. Gnetum gnemon  Common name is often melinjo.  It is native to the Pacific Northwest  It is a small to medium sized tree.
  • 10. Juniperus communis  This conifer is known as the common juniper.  Its berries are actually ovule- producing cones consisting of fleshy sporophylls.
  • 11. Selaginella apoda  This lycophyte is a spike moss that is commonly known as meadow-spike moss.  It is found primarily in damp soils and it is mainly a lowland plant.  The plant was originally described by Carl Linnaeus himself.
  • 12. Equisetum arvense  This pterophyte known as the common horsetail.  With jointed stems, rings of small leaves at the joints, and the stem being the main photosynthetic center, this species is the epitomy of an arthrophyte.
  • 13. Plagiochila deltoidea  This is a leafy liverwort that lives on wet ground.  It can get up to 60 mm long.
  • 14. Anthoceros agrestis  Commonly called a field hornwort.  This species of Anthocerophyta is known fro containing acids like cinnamic acid 4-hydroxylase.
  • 15. Psilotum nudum  This is whisk fern of the phylum pterophyta commonly called Skeleton Fork Fern.  It has no roots.  It is considered a primitive plant, possibly a descendent of the first vascular plants.
  • 16. Wollemia nobilis  An evergreen tree known commonly as the Wallemi pine. It is a survivor of a conifer group once known only from fossils.  It was discovered in 1994 in a national park in Sydney, Australia.  It consists of merely 40 known individuals.
