Give reasons why mosses are found in humid and moist areas.

Answer: The entire body of moss in damp humid places can absorb water. Moreover, sperms in mosses are flagellated and so they can reach the archegonia only in presence of water. Thus, water is indispensable in the life cycle of mosses for reproduction as well as for performing other physiological functions.
