[Ep-01]苔蘚簡介 Introducing the Moss

Updated: Sep 24





Mosses are non-vascular plants in the land plant division Bryophyta.

They grow chiefly in moist, cool, humid, cloudy climates and shaded areas, such as wooded areas.

Mosses are small plants that absorb water and nutrients mainly through their leaves , harvest carbon dioxide and sunlight to create food by photosynthesis.

Their leaves are simple, usually only a single layer of cells. They do not have proper roots, but have threadlike rhizoids that anchor them to their substrate, and they do not absorb water or nutrients from their substrate through their rhizoids.

They require enough sunlight to perform photosynthesis, just as it does with other plants.

Wherever they occur, mosses require liquid water for at least part of the year to complete fertilisation. Many mosses can survive desiccation, sometimes for months, returning to life within a few hours of rehydration.
