    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:

    Moss structures:

    Mosses have small tiny basal processes which
    have the function and as roots, but have more the function
    rhizoid holdfasts, they are called rhizomes.
    The leaves of roots don't contain vasculair tissue and are only
    one cell thick, they are called phyllids,
