Dear student, 

Please find below the solution to the asked query:
The gymnosperms are a group of vascular plants whose seeds are not enclosed by a ripened ovary. The leaves of gymnosperms are well adapted to withstand extreme humidity and temperature conditions. For example, in conifers the shape of the leaves is needle type and hence the surface area is reduced, also the sunken stomata and thick cuticle prevent or reduce the loss of water.
