The bryophytes though regarded as terrestrial plants, their range of habitat is diverse.

On one extreme, they grow in situations, where they are almost constantly submerged in water (e.g., Riccia fluitans), on the other hand, most of the species, however, occur in moist situations on various substrata.Therefore,Bryophyes regarded as plant amphibians.

Although  Bryophytes live on land, they require water for reproduction. So, they r regarded as the amphibians of the plant kingdom.
