Describe the pine life cycle:

a diploid embryo turns to a diploid seed, which becomes a seedling and grows 2 types of cones, ovulate and pollen. In the pollen cone, the 2n microsporangium undergo meiosis to produce haploid pollen grains, which pollenate the megasporangium that was inside the ovule (ovulate cone). This undergoes meiosis to make a haploid megaspore, which developes into the archegonium and female gametophyte. Then inside the sperm and egg meet and fertilize, making an embryo.
