When I find on Google, they said that "Pterydophyta Spermatophyta: Angiospermae Dicotyledones ", it is Dicotyledones- a high revoluted plant

They're ferns i.e. no flowers.

There are a few reasons why pteridofytas are classified as inferior to gimnospermes. Here is 2 that come to my mind now
- They do not have seeds, so it is less probable for the embryo to survive
- Unlike gimnosperes and angiospermes the plant does not consist entirely of the spropyte... We can still speak of an alternance in generations

it's alright, that's why we have moderators :D.

For future reference though, I'd look into the text of the search results...not just the google summary.

P.S it's pterophyta

P.S it's pterophyta

As mush as I remember from lab notes, it is PTERIDOPHYTA.
It is mainly divided into these divisios:
PSILOPHYTA(=PSILOPHYTES)
LEPIDOPHYTA
CALAMOPHYTA
PTEROPHYTA

The differences btw Pteridophyta and Spermatophyta: (from lab notes.)
1-There must be water for fertilization.
2-Gametophytes live independent from the beginning of its life or from some stage of its life.
3-Sporophytes grow from zygote to mature without inturruption.
4-There are no seeds.

I think it's just a variant spelling. Both queries were redirected to the fern page in wikipedia.

My bontany book also says pteridophyta. But many things are spelled differently in different countries. Despite this, I would expect something like this to be spelled the same everywhere because it is latin, no?

What is a divisio? Do you mean division? As in part?
