UPDATES:

2/1/13 - The order of the review slides has now been changed so that the Lycophytes are first in the Vascular Plants, followed by the Sphenophytes and then the Psilophytes. Also, the index page has been changed so that the "-ophyta" label is no longer used and the groupings are now called "-ophyte" or "-ophytes."

1/31/13 - The slide for Coleochaete has now been changed to reflect that it is ONE OF the closest living relatives to the Land Plants, but Chara is now considered to be sister to the Land Plants.
