From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Vascular plants (from Latin vasculum: duct), also known as tracheophytes (from the equivalent Greek term trachea ), form a large group of plants ( c. 308,312 accepted known species) that are defined as land plants that have lignified tissues (the xylem) for conducting water and minerals throughout the plant.
- Equisetophyta ~ horsetails.
- Lycopodiophyta ~ clubmosses, spikemosses, quillworts.
- Pteridophyta ~ ferns.

Non-vascular plants is a general term for those plants without a vascular system ( xylem and phloem ). Although non-vascular plants do not have these tissues, some of them have other tissues for internal transport of water . Nonvascular plants have no roots, stems, or leaves.

Aglaophyton, a rootless vascular plant known from Devonian fossils in the Rhynie chert was the first land plant discovered to have had a symbiotic relationship with fungi which formed arbuscular mycorrhizas, literally "tree-like fungal roots", in a well-defined cylinder of cells (ring in cross section) in the cortex of its stems.
Vascular tissue is a complex conducting tissue, formed of more than one cell type, found in vascular plants. The primary components of vascular tissue are the xylem and phloem. These two tissues transport fluid and nutrients internally.
This is the parent page for the list of vascular plants of Britain and Ireland. Because of the size of the list, it is spread across multiple pages. Part 1 covers ferns and allies (Lycopodiopsida, Equisetopsida and Pteridopsida) Part 2 covers the conifers The remaining parts cover the flowering plants (Magnoliopsida):
While Cooksonia fossils are distributed globally, most type specimens come from Britain, where they were first discovered in 1937. Cooksonia includes the oldest known plant to have a stem with vascular tissue and is thus a transitional form between the primitive non-vascular bryophytes and the vascular plants.
