Since such biological compounds as aromatic and phenolic substances in bryophytes
, aliphatic compounds and fatty acids are preserved against organisms such as mammals, insect larvae, bacteria, fungi, snails, and slugs, almost all species of bryophytes
are not damaged by these organisms (Asakawa 2001, 2007b; Xie and Lou 2009; Elibol et al.

Given that 60% of bryophytes
worldwide are dioicous (Wyatt and Anderson 1984), most studies on sex ratios have been undertaken on dioicous species, whilst monoicous species have been neglected.
On the other hand, the bryophytes
present a significant correlation vis-a-vis diameter at the same site and vis-a-vis the same phorophyte.
are important in terms of species richness and cover in many habitats, as well as for ecosystem functioning (Goffinet & Shaw, 2009).
2002) compared riverine plants (macroalgae, bryophytes
, hydrophytes, and emergent rhizophytes) in the River Rance in France in 1861-1865 with those present in 1995-1996 downstream from a dam constructed in 1938.

2010) and that the early land plants, responsible for the initial greening of the earth and making the land habitable for life as we know it, resembled the bryophytes
and that all higher land plants evolved from these pioneers.
, the species is known to stay dried-out during long, cold winters and then come back to life after a time.
