Bryophyta | Moss

Moss, scientifically known as bryophyta, is a non-vascular plant that lacks flowers, seeds, and true roots. Mosses are typically small, green plants that grow in moist, shady areas. They play an important role in the environment by providing habitat for small animals and helping to prevent soil erosion.

Botanical Information:

Mosses reproduce by spores, which are tiny reproductive cells that are released into the air. When a spore lands in a moist, shady spot, it can germinate and grow into a new moss plant. Mosses have a simple structure, with a stem and leaves. They do not have true roots, but they do have rhizoids, which are thread-like structures that anchor the moss to the ground and help it absorb water and nutrients.
