Annotation:Bryology is the branch of botany concerned with the study of bryophytes. Bryophytes were the first land plants to emerge around 460 million years ago from the single-celled aquatic green algae. In the present about 20 000 species of bryophytes (together: mosses, liverworts, and hornworts) are known. One part of the course will be a field excursion in Beskydy Mts.
