Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

phloem - this is the vascular tissue found in plants which conducts sugars and other important metabolic products downward from the leaves.

Club mosses- these are  low-growing green plants which resemble  large mosses, and have branching stems covered with undivided leaves. 

Ferns- these are flowerless plants that have feathery or even leafy fronds and they reproduces through spores that are released from the undersides of the fronds. 

Horsetails- they are nonflowering plant with hollow jointed stem and bears whorls of narrow leaves,that  produce spores at the tips of the shoots.

pollen- is a fine powdery substance, consisting of microscopic grains that are discharged from the male part of  flowers or from  male cones. Each grain has a male gamete used to fertilize the female ovule, through which pollen is transported by the wind, insects, or even  other animals.

Pollination- is the process through which pollen is transferred from the anther of male plant to the stigma of the female  plant, and hence  enabling fertilization and reproduction.
