Embryophytes are land plants. They are they things most people call plants, the bryophytes, ferns, gymnosperms and flowering plants. Another way of looking at it is to say they are the Viridiplantae minus the algae. They include the Bryophytes and the vascular plants.

Embryophytes started sometime between the mid-Cambrian and the Ordovician period and continued to the present day.
