Also know, what is phylum Hepatophyta?
The non-vascular plants include the modern mosses(phylum Bryophyta), liverworts (phylum Hepatophyta),and hornworts (phylum Anthocerophyta). First, their lack ofvascular tissue limits their ability to transport water internally,restricting the size they can reach before their outermost portionsdry out.
Also Know, what division liverworts belong to? Traditionally, the liverworts were groupedtogether with other bryophytes (mosses and hornworts) in theDivision Bryophyta, within which the liverworts madeup the class Hepaticae (also called Marchantiopsida).
Similarly, it is asked, are Gemmae cups haploid or diploid?
In liverworts such as Marchantia, the flattened plantbody or thallus is a haploid gametophyte with gemmacups scattered about its upper surface. The gemma cupsare cup-like structures containing gemmae. Thegemmae are small discs of haploid tissue, and theydirectly give rise to new gametophytes.
Which generation is the liverwort thallus?
The gametophyte generation consists of thehaploid thallus and is the dominant generation; itdevelops from a germinating spore.
