    ‘Detailed field experiments on current generation GM crops show that in a range of environments they are very unlikely to invade the countryside and become problematic plants.’ ‘Depending on the size of the bog garden and the maintenance levels, some reeds and rushes should be avoided because of the tendency to completely invade the area.’. The aquatic to terrestrial transition of vertebrate organisms occurred in the Late Devonian epoch and was an important step in the evolutionary history of modern land vertebrates. The transition allowed animals to escape competitive pressure from the water and explore niche opportunities on land. Fossils from this period have allowed scientists to identify some of the species that .

Way of aquatic plants to reproduce the next generation is releasing pollen that can float on water surface and form spores to grow into new plants. Meanwhile, land plants cannot spread pollen or seeds like aquatic plants. Wind-pollinated plants are suggested way to.   One clade among these algae successfully garnered a foothold on land and became the progenitor of all higher plants.

Land plants evolved from a group of green algae, perhaps as early as mya, but algae-like plants might have evolved as early as 1 billion years ago. The closest living relatives of land plants are the charophytes, specifically Charales; assuming that the habit of the Charales has changed little since the divergence of lineages, this means that the land plants.

Ancestral algae began to invade the land early in the Paleozoic, and plants that closely resemble modern bryophytes appeared shortly (say million years!) thereafter.
