AbstractThis light and scanning electron microscope study of freshly collected material confirms that the protonemal system of Ephemeropis is the most highly differentiated so far found in mosses and reveals hitherto unsuspected roles for its unique features. Whereas substrate attachment in the Hypnales, illustrated here in Homalothecium sericeum, is by clusters of irregular terminal mucilage-secreting ramifications on long otherwise unbranched rhizoids and in other mosses is via otherwise… CONTINUE READING
