Scientific Classification Making sense of what might otherwise  appear to be unrelated and/or  random. How many things are in common and  how many things differ? ( reiterative patterns and modules )

Organisms are classified  into a hierarchy of  categories or levels Tree of life (hypothesis): Chap. 16, pg. 362

Similarities to Green Algae 1. Shares cellulosic wall composition 2. Shares features of cell division 3. Phytochrome pigment is present 4. Chloroplasts contain chlorophyll a and b  and carotenoids 5. Chloroplast anatomy is similar Chara

Similarities to Vascular Plants 1. Male and female reproductive structures are  protected 2. Multicellular embryo is protected within the  female parent 3. Sporophyte produces spores by meiosis 4. Sterile cell layer protects multicellular  sporangia  (hollow structures that contain  spores) ©R.T. Webb 2007

Distinct from Vascular Plants 1. Have body structures anatomically similar to leaves  and stems called  thalli  ( thallus , singular) 2. Have anchoring structures called  rhizoids  (like roots  but do not serve in absorption) 3. Have water-conducting cells called  hydroids 4. Have food-conducting cells called  leptoids 5. Some bryophytes have stomata for transpiration ©RTW 2007
