2. Modern bryophytes almost certainly evolv ed from a single common ancestor, and they likely represent several lineages along the evolutionary path to vascular plants. Recent fossil discoveries push back the earliest appearance of bryophytes to million years ago. Existing bryophytes preserve a suite of ancestral characteristicsFile Size: 1MB. Although the book's coverage assimilates selected materials from the more comprehensive tome Bryophyte Biology edited by Goffinet and Shaw (Cited in IB), Introduction to Bryophytes can stand alone and is suitable for beginning students of bryology with an introductory background in botany.

Cambridge Core - Plant Sciences - Bryophyte Biology - by Bernard Goffinet / edited by A. Jonathan ShawAuthor: Bernard Goffinet. Bryophyte Biology provides a comprehensive yet succinct overview of the morphology, systematics, ecology, and evolution of hornworts, liverworts, and mosses.
A distinguished set of contributors provide state-of-the-art summaries of the most recent advances in bryology, with rich citation of the current literature. Revised classifications for the liverworts and mosses are presented that 5/5(1). ADVERTISEMENTS: The below mentioned article provides a note on bryophytes.
Fossil of Hepaticopsida: Fossils of the Hepaticopsida were previously not known before the Carboniferous while the lower vascular plants (the Pteridophytes) were known from a much earlier age. This fact, naturally, gave rise to speculations.
Recently however, Hueber () has discovered Hepaticites devonicus. The Study Of Bryophytes Is No Longer Confined To Their Morphology, Anatomy, Life-History, And Phylogenetic Considerations.
In Recent Years There Has Been An Increasing Emphasis On Investigations Concerning The Ultrastructure, Reproductive Biology, Ecology, Morphogenesis, Physiology, Biochemistry And Related Aspects Of Bryophytes.
These Themes Have Also Rightfully 5/5(2). The Bryophytes are a division of plants that includes all non-vascular, land plants and can be split into three groups: mosses, hornworts and liverworts.
Although each group is genetically very different they each share some common adaptations which have led to. This book is a richly illustrated introductory text summarising and explaining recent advances made across various aspects of bryophyte biology.
No prior knowledge is necessary, making this ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as amateur botanists wanting to understand the fundamental aspects of bryophyte morphology /5(7).

Characteristics of Bryophytes There are several characteristic features of bryophytes. First, the green tissue that makes up most of the plant body is not vascularized; it does not have xylem and phloem cells. This absence of specialized tissues for transporting water and dissolved food throughout the organism limits terrestrial forms to being very short plants, since the only way to move.

and Michael R. Rose.Bryophytes are the group of plants that are the closest extant relative of early terrestrial plants. The first bryophytes (liverworts) most likely appeared in the Ordovician period, about million years ago.
Because of the lack of lignin and other resistant structures, the likelihood of bryophytes forming fossils is .Ecology of Bryophytes They live as understory components on the ground or as epiphytes in forests worldwide, but flourish most luxuriantly in moist warm‐temperate and tropical habitats.
Many of the liverworts and some species of moss are pioneers on newly burned ground while still other mosses colonize bare rock surfaces where their presence.
