Write down four main characters of Bryophyta. Give two examples.

Answer :

Characters of Bryophyta:

(I) These are found on both land and water, therefore they are known as amphibhians of the plant kingdom.

(II) The plant body is commonly differentiated to form stem and leaf-like structures.

(III) These plants do not have specialised tissue for the conduction of water and other substances from one part of the plant body to another.

(IV) The main plant body of the bryophyte is haploid. It produces gametes, hence is called a gametophyte.

Examples: Moss (Funaria) and Marchantia.
