    Excellent summaries of the general structure, life cycle, and classification of bryophytes may be found in the North American field guides by Conard and Redfearn () and Vitt et al., (). These field guides are widely available and serve as useful entries to more technical taxonomic keys, which are listed as general references in these.

      Bryophyte Life Cycle. The bryophyte lifecycle consists of alternating generations between the haploid gametophyte and the diploid the gametophyte stage, haploid gametes (male and female) are formed in the specialized sex organs: the antheridia (male) and archegonia (female).   Introduction. Bryophytes occur in almost all terrestrial and fresh-water habitats, and their ecological role may be considerable. + species of the group, which consists of the three monophyletic lineages of liverworts, hornworts, and mosses, share the same complex life cycle in which the diploid sporophytes are lifelong-dependent, for at least part of their carbohydrates and.

In each cycle, a haploid gametophyte, each of whose cells contains a fixed number of unpaired chromosomes, alternates with a diploid sporophyte, whose cell contain two sets of paired phytes produce haploid sperm and eggs which fuse to form diploid zygotes that grow into sporophytes.

Hornworts are a group of bryophytes (a group of non-vascular plants) constituting the division common name refers to the elongated horn-like structure, which is the in mosses and liverworts, the flattened, green plant body of a hornwort is the gametophyte plant.

Hornworts may be found worldwide, though they tend to grow only in places that are damp or. Such ancestors formed compact masses of cells by the union of filaments. It adopted them in the terrestrial mode of life. But their vegetative structure remained simple.

Bryophytes have following affinities with algae: 1. Some algae and all bryophytes show alternation of generation. Gametophyte is dominant in both groups. The sporangium, the multicellular sexual reproductive structure, is present in bryophytes and absent in the majority of algae.

The sporophyte embryo also remains attached to the parent plant, which protects and nourishes it. This is a characteristic of land plants. The bryophytes are divided into three phyla: the liverworts (Hepaticophyta), the. The Structure and Life of Bryophytes By E.

Watson. (London: Hutchinson and Co. (Publishers), Ltd., ) 15s. net. As do all plants, bryophytes alternate a gametophytic generation with a sporophytic one (a sporic meiosis, a life cycle in which meiosis gives rise to spores, not gametes).Each of the haploid (1 n) spores is capable of developing into a multicellular, haploid individual, the first structure formed from spores in most mosses and many liverworts is a filamentous, algal-like.

Bryophyte - Bryophyte - Natural history: The life cycle of bryophytes consists of an alternation of two stages, or generations, called the sporophyte and the gametophyte.

Each generation has a different physical form. When a spore germinates, it usually produces the protonema, which precedes the appearance of the more elaborately organized gametophytic plant, the gametophyte, which produces.

The bryophytes show an alternation of generations between the independent gametophyte generation, which produces the sex organs and sperm and eggs, and the dependent sporophyte generation, which produces the contrast to vascular plants, the bryophyte sporophyte usually lacks a complex vascular system and produces only one spore-containing organ (sporangium) rather than many.

The life cycle of Bryophytes is like all the other land plants (embryophytes) with alternation of generations.

A haploid gametophyte cell contains a fixed number of unpaired chromosomes. It gives rise to diploid sporophyte, which, however, contains twice the number of paired chromosomes.

Understand the life cycle of Bryophytes.

Understand how Bryophytes reproduces. What is the structure of Antheridium and Archegonium of Bryophyta.bryophytes was a multicellular sporophyte (Fig. ). Two simple steps can account for the evolution of this new structure. First, meiosis must be delayed in the zygote, which, as you recall, is retained on the parent gametophyte in land plant ancestors.

Second, the zygote must undergo mitotic cell divisions to create a multicellular body.
