The plants contained in the Division Bryophyta, are more commonly known as mosses. These are non-vascular plants of terrestrial and aquatic habitats, often evident as members of the ground flora, or epiphytes on the trunks of trees. There are thought to be approximately 20,000 known species globally, with many more species yet to be described, especially in the tropics.
