Give the important features of division Bryophyta.

Answer:

  • Bryophytes are called the amphibians of the plant kingdom.
  • The plant body is commonly differentiated to form stem and leaf-like structures. But there is no specific tissue for conduction of water and other substances.
  • Vegetative reproduction is very common.
  • Sexual reproduction is of oogamous type, i.e., the male gamete is small and motile and female gamete is non-motile and large, e.g., moss, Funaria and Marchantia
