Hi viewers Today we will discuss about the world of Bryophyta Definition of Bryophyta A division of nonflowering plants characterized by rhizoids rather than true roots and having little or no organized vascular tissue and showing alternation of generations between gamete-bearing forms and spore-bearing forms; comprises true mosses (Bryopsida) and liverworts (Hepaticopsida) and hornworts (Anthoceropsida) PROPERTIES BRYOPHYTA Autophytic nutrition. Terrestrial Aphibians among the Plant Kingdom because it needs water during the reproduction Thallus body Reserve food material is starch Cell wall- cellulose Sporophyte depends upon the gametophyte Adult life starts with gametophyte Chemotropism- occurs by synthesis of sucrose Vascular tissue is absent Eg. Any kind of moss Q and A on Bryophyta What are the main characters of Bryophyta? (3) Ans. The main characters of Bryophyta: a) Bryophyta is a kind of non-flowering, autophytic independent plant. b) The gametophytic plant body of the lower Bryophytes are not differentiated into root, stem and leaves, Eg.- Riccia.

Virus an enigma between living and nonliving Schizophyta- Bacteria Thallophyta- Algae and Fungi Bryophyta- Moss Pterydophyta- Fern Gymnosperm- Cycas and Pinus Monocotyledonous- All the pulses and cereals Dicotyledonous- All the flowering plants Virus an enigma between living and nonliving     PROPERTIES OF VIRUS   It is the bridge between living and non-living It is living when it is present inside the body of the host and non-living when it is outside the body...
