Like gymnosperms, angiosperms are seed-producing plants. However, they are distinguished from gymnosperms by characteristics including flowers, endosperm within the seeds, and the production of fruits that contain the seeds.

I begin by summarising the incredible morphological and genetic diversity of flowering plants, and the ways in which this can be studied using phylogenetic inference. I continue by discussing both the relationships between angiosperms and the other major lineages of seed plants, and the relationships between the main groups within angiosperms. In both cases, I outline how our knowledge has changed over time based on factors such as the different conclusions drawn from morphological and genetic data.
Flowering plants-which replicate with sexual structures (. produce seeds but not flowers. flowers) to produce seeds-now dominate the planet, but for the first 300 million years or so of plant existence, beginning around 450 million years ago, the only types of vegetation belonged to older, more primitive families, such as algae, mosses and ferns, which all reproduce with spores rather than seeds, or gymnosperms, which. During the Early Cretaceous, some of the first primitive flowering plants began to evolve. Jud honored this recent history in naming the ancient species that this specimen represents.
150,000,000 years ago the early land-life periods of the world’s history began. This period brings Urantia to near the end of the long reptilian dominance and witnesses the appearance of flowering plants and bird life on land
150,000,000 years ago the early land-life periods of the world’s history began. Life, in general, did not fare well but did better than at the strenuous and hostile close of the marine-life era. 60:1. This period brings Urantia to near the end of the long reptilian dominance and witnesses the appearance of flowering plants and bird life on land. These are also the times of the termination of the westward and southward drift of the continents, accompanied by tremendous crustal deformations and concomitant widespread lava flows and great volcanic activities.
