    There has been an increasing interest in bryophyte ecology over the past or so years, initially of a phytosociological nature but, additionally, in recent years, of an experimental nature as well. Early studies of bryophyte communities have led to detailed investigations into the relationships between the plants and their environment.   The first bryophytes (liverworts) probably appeared in the Ordovician period, about million years ago. However, because they lack of lignin and other resistant structures, bryophyte fossil formation is improbable and the fossil record is poor. Some spores protected by sporopollenin have survived and are attributed to early bryophytes.

      The second edition of Bryophyte Biology (BB2) follows the first edition published only eight years previously. The differences between the two editions are great both in content and organization. Complete reviews of such a work would surely Cited by: 9. Bryophyte Biology. out of 5 stars 3 ratings.

Outlines the biology of bryophytes and lichens, noting differences and similarities in ecology, and emphasising the ecological relevance of growth form, life form and plant strategies. ADVERTISEMENTS: The division Bryophyta (Gr. bryon=moss) includes over species of non-vascular embryophytes such as mosses, liverworts and hornworts.

Bryophytes are small plants (2cm to 60cm) that grow in moist shady places. They don’t attain great heights because of absence of roots, vascular tissues, mechanical tissues and cuticle. They are terrestrial but require external water [ ]Missing: book. The Study Of Bryophytes Is No Longer Confined To Their Morphology, Anatomy, Life-History, And Phylogenetic Considerations.

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 .Ecological and economic benefits of bryophytes 1. Bryophytes were the world’s only plants for million years. 2. Peat bogs are made mostly of moss called Sphagnum.

They contain billion tons of carbon and cut down the amount of greenhouse gases. Peat is harvested, dried, and used as a fuel. 3.
