Bryophyta (Moss Division)


Home
Major Group

Bryophyta is commonly known as moss division. These plants have no vascular tissue, leaves , cones or flower. Most mosses are small and inconspicuous, and don't receive as much attention as flowering plants, ferns or conifers. Mosses play important roles in reducing erosion along streams, cycling water and nutrient in tropical forests, and insulating the arctic permafrost. Bryophyta differs from Hepatophyta (Liverworts) and Anthocerotophyta (Hornworts) from their persistent unbranched sporophytes.
