Gymnosperm leaf

The organism in the picture is a small conifer. Conifers are gymnosperms. The word gymnosperm comes from the word gymnospermos which means naked seed. Gymnosperms make seeds and unlike angiosperms, or flowering plants their seeds are unenclosed. The gymnosperm leaf is usually small and simple. The gymnosperm in the picture has small awl like leaves.
