    Hi there, so we're studying plant reproduction and there's one thing that's quite bothering me; not sure exactly what it means:

    Flowering plants are diploid and meiosis takes place within the reproductive tissues toproduce haploid reproductive structures or spores.

    - Meiosis takes place in the anther to produce the male spores or pollen grains whichcontain haploid gametes.

    - The female spores are the ovules, which are made in the ovary. The female gametesdevelop inside the ovule.
    What are spores?
