Bryophyta
Bryophytes are small, non-vascular plants that prefer moist environments.

Bryophytes are non-vascular moss plants that you mostly find growing on rocks near ponds, streams or bodies of water.

Habitat: Found in moist habitats on land such as damp places, near streams or ponds, tree trunks, shady places etc.

Bryophyta includes mosses, hornworts and liverworts.

Characteristics of Bryophytes:

1. They do not have a vascular system and are, therefore, unable to transport food and materials around the body.

2. They do not possess roots, instead, they are anchored to the ground by rhizoids.

3. They possess chlorophyll and carry out photosynthesis.

4. They are terrestrial plants but are known as “amphibians of the plant kingdom” as they require water for sexual reproduction.
