This powerpoint will offer a simple explanation of plant evolution and classification. It touches on four major evolutionary events in plants, as well as some of the different phyla in the plant kingdom. It would be a complimentary to use with the presentation "Major Phyla of the Animal Kingdom" in my store.
This presentation includes the phyla: Bryophyta, Pterophyta, Coniferophyta, Cycadophyta, Ginkgophyta, and Anthophyta.
It also distinguishes between Gymnosperms and Angiosperms. And between Monocots and Eudicots (or Dicots).
