Bryophytes are called non-vascular plants as they lack true vascular tissue for the transport of water, minerals and nutrients. Bryophytes do not produce flowers or seeds for reproduction, they reproduce via spores. This group includes mosses, liverworts and hornworts. There are about 20,000 species of bryophytes in 177 families.
