Gymnosperm plants are a group of seed producing plants which include cycads, conifers, ginkgo, and gnetales. Unlike flowers, the seeds of gymnosperms are naked, or unenclosed. The gymnosperms and angiosperms together compose the spermatophytes or seed plants. Gymnosperms are vascular plants.

What is a Plant?
A plant is one of the two groups into which all living organisms are traditionally divided into; the other being animals. A plant is usually a stationery living organism and as such needs to absorb nutrients from its surroundings in order to grow and survive. Typically plants have roots which are the organs of a plant that normally lie below the surface of the soil; however there are some types of plants which do have aerial roots. Within the scientific classification chart plants belong to the Kingdom Plantae family.
