mosses or Bryophytes
These are small evergreen plants that can be found
on wet or damp shady places. They have a tiny root system
and reproduce by forming spores. Many mosses are less than
2cm long, very rarely more than 20 centimeter. Most mosses
can be found in the tropical regions, but mosses and
liverworts can even be found on Antartica.
The mosses are called Bryophytes and there are three divisions:
The mosses, liverworts, and hornworts
Mosses are different than the higher plants: mosses don't have
vasculair tissue. So the stems, leaves and roots contain no
vasculair tissue and are therefor not capable to transport large
amounts of fluids.
Most mosses consist of haploid cells: cells that have only one
sample of every chromosome (this is written as n), all the higher
plants (and animals)have two samples of every chromosome,
written as 2n. Have a look at the reproduction of common hair cap:
