    Bryophyte Biology provides an extensive overview of the hornworts, liverworts, and mosses; diverse groups of land plants that occupy a great variety of habitats throughout the world. This new edition covers essential aspects of bryophyte biology, from morphology, physiological ecology and conservation, to speciation, and genomics. Bryophytes evolved important advances in both phases of the land plant life cycle. These key innovations allowed plants to colonize the land, setting off a series of spectacular adaptive radiations, first among bryophytes and later in vascular Size: 1MB.

Perfect for acing essays, tests, and quizzes, as well as for writing lesson plans. Bryophytes were a pivotal step in land plant evolution, and their significance in the regulation of ecosystems and the conservation of biodiversity is becoming increasingly acknowledged.

    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 .

Bryophytes are the closest extant relatives of early terrestrial plants. The first bryophytes (liverworts) most likely appeared in the Ordovician period, about million years ago. Because they lack lignin and other resistant structures, the likelihood of bryophytes forming fossils is rather small.

"This volume is a valuable resource for advanced readers focusing on the overall biology of bryophytes." S.L. Timme, Choice "Because the second edition represents a major revision, rather than merely an update, of the first edition, anyone who has the first edition will want the second edition as well.5/5(2).

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. BOOK REVIEW THE BIOLOGY OF BRYOPHYTES BRYOPHYTES AREN’T JUST SMALL TRACHEOPHYTES1 BRENT D.

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 them currently being clumped together as Bryophytes.

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.

Bryophytes were a pivotal step in land plant evolution, and their significance in the regulation of ecosystems and the conservation of biodiversity is becoming increasingly acknowledged. The book's strength is in presentation of details of cellular structure, so important for identifying mosses and their ilk.

This book will be useful for years to come. This is not a book for the beginner; without solid training in general botany it is likely to be overwhelming, if not impenetrable. This is a reference book Cited by:   Bryophytes are nonvascular because they do not have tracheids; instead, water and nutrients circulate inside specialized conducting cells.

In a bryophyte, all the vegetative organs belong to the gametophyte, which is the dominant and most familiar form; the sporophyte appears for. Bryophytes comprises the simplest land plants of plant kingdom (kingdom plantae).
