1 In aggregate, past discussions of heterospory and its role in the alternation of generations are riddled with ambiguities that reflect overlap of terms and concepts. Heterospory sensu lato can be analyzed more effectively if it is fragmented into a series of more readily defined evolutionary innovations: heterospory sensu stricto (bimodality of spore size), dioicy, heterosporangy, endospory, monomegaspory, endomegasporangy, integumentation, lagenostomy, in situ pollination, in situ… Expand
