A Closer Look
The life cycle of fern species provides a good example of the differing roles played by the gametophyte and sporophyte in organisms that display an alternation of generations. The familiar large frond-bearing fern plant is the sporophyte generation of the fern. By meiosis it produces haploid spores that are dispersed and develop into gametophytes. Fern gametophytes are inconspicuous matlike plants that can make their own food by photosynthesis. The gametophytes produce both sperm and eggs. Sperm from another gametophyte reaches one of these eggs and fuses with it to form an embryo, which then grows out of the gametophyte as a new sporophyte plant. In many nonvascular plants, such as the mosses and liverworts, the sporophyte is a relatively small plant that grows in or on top of the gametophyte, which is larger. In gymnosperms and angiosperms, however, the sporophyte is the main plant form, and the gametophyte is dependent on the sporophyte.
