To review:

The specific aspects of a moss plant’s anatomy that resemble vascular plants.

Introduction:

Mosses are bryophytes and are believed to have evolved from liverworts. They usually grow on rocks, shady locations, and moist surfaces, and lack a root system to conduct water. There are some species that have developed poor water-conducting tissues that resemble tissues of vascular systems.

Explanation of Solution

Mosses are structurally and functionally similar to vascular plants. The presence of primitive conducting tissues helps in the conduction of water. They are made up of thin-walled empty cells called hydroids with many perforations. This structure acts like the xylem found in the vascular system. There are some structures that are surrounded by sugar conducting tissues that resemble phloem...
