Angiosperms go a step further from ferns in their adaptations to terrestrial life. They, of course, possess all the specialised structures like roots, stems, leaves, cuticles, stomata, xylems and tough seeds, which enable water conservation and dispersal of seeds for reproduction.

 

 

In addition to all these adaptations shared with ferns, angiosperms (so-called because their seeds are enclosed e.g. in fruit) are capable of further adaptations to harsher environments, as well as adaptations that take advantage of other environmental niches.
