WHAT DOES BRYOPHYTE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

bryophyte

Bryophyte

Bryophyte is a traditional name used to refer to all embryophytes that do not have true vascular tissue and are therefore called "non-vascular plants". Some bryophytes do have specialized tissues for the transport of water; however since these do not contain lignin, they are not considered to be true vascular tissue. Currently bryophytes are thought not to be a natural or monophyletic group; however the name is convenient and remains in use as a collective term for mosses, hornworts, and liverworts. Bryophytes produce enclosed reproductive structures, but they produce neither flowers nor seeds, reproducing via spores. The term bryophyte comes from Greek βρύον, bryon, "tree-moss, oyster-green" + φυτόν - phyton "plant".

Definition of bryophyte in the English dictionary

The definition of bryophyte in the dictionary is any plant of the phyla Bryophyta, Hepatophyta, or Anthocerophyta, having stems and leaves but lacking true vascular tissue and roots and reproducing by spores.
