Mosses do not have seeds and after fertilisation develop sporophytes
Mosses are commonly confused with lichens. Lichens may superficially look like mosses, but are not related to mosses
Mosses are now classified on their own as the division Bryophyta. There are approximately 12,000 species
A lichen is a composite organism that arises from algae and/or cyanobacteria living among filaments of a fungus in a symbiotic relationship. Lichens come in many colours, sizes, and forms.
Lichens do not have roots that absorb water and nutrients as plants do, but like plants they produce their own food by photosynthesis using sunlight energy, from carbon dioxide, water and minerals in their environment. When they grow on plants, they do not live as parasites and only use the plants as a substrate.
