Bryophytes are a group of small and non-vascular land plants. They are mainly found growing in
moist and shady places in the hilly areas. The three main types of bryophytes consist of liverworts, mosses, and hornworts
Liverworts— These are extremely small plants with flattened stems and undifferentiated leaves,
They are characterized by the presence of membrane-bound oil bodies within their cells.
Mosses-– They are clumpy, green plants often found in moist environments out of direct sunlight.
Mosses are characterized by one single cell attached to a stem and are used for the transportation of water and nutrients.
Hornworts– They are characterized by long horn-like sporophyte. Most hornworts are found in damp environments, garden soils, or tree bark.
