___are called as amphibians of the plant kingdom



They are known as amphibians of the plant kingdom because these plants live in soil but they need water for asexual reproduction.

  • The plant body is thallus like, i.e. prostrate or erect
  • It is attached to the substratum by rhizoids, which are unicellular or multicellular
  • They lack true vegetative structure and have a root-like, stem-like and leaf-like structure
  • Plants lack the vascular system (xylem, phloem)
  • Bryophytes show alternation of generation between independent gametophyte with sex organs, which produces sperm and eggs and dependent sporophyte which contains spores
  • The dominant part of the plant body is gametophyte which is haploid
  • The thalloid gametophyte is differentiated into rhizoids, axis and leaves
  • The gametophyte bears multicellular sex organs and is photosynthetic
  • The antheridium produces antherozoids, which are biflagellated
