Week 3 Critical Thinking ?? Exercise The different Phyla (or Divisions as they are called in Botany) represent a different stage in the transition of plants from being aquatic to completely terrestrial. This took millions of years, and yet we still see very “primitive” plants alive today. 1. Apply the characteristics of each phylum to this trend of increasing adaptation of plants to terrestrial life. What specific trait evolved to allow each step “away” from water? 2. Compare and contrast the existence of “primitive” plants to the continued presence of ancient, anaerobic bacteria that can still be found. How is this possible?
