Are there more vascular plants living in soil , air or water on earth?
Thanks for the question. I believe there are more vascular plants living on soil than in the water.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have more questions.
Most vascular plants would likely be land plants, rooted in soil, though there are many epiphytes in tree canopies particularly in tropical regions.
