Embryophytes: definition and meaning


BOTANICAL DICTIONARY

EMBRYOPHITIS

The name embryophyte derives from the fact that plants develop a multicellular embryo within the same plant, therefore it is the synonym of terrestrial plants.
Traditionally, embryophytes include bryophytes (mosses, antoceros and liverworts) and vascular plants (tracheophytes). With the most modern botanical classification based on phylogenetic analysis, it would appear that bryophytes are a paraphyletic group compared to embryophytes.
