With nearly 23000 species,various ecological adaptation,unique life history and poikilohydrous water relations,bryophytes are important components of the biodiversity of the world,In virtue of their ecophysiological attributes,bryophytes grow in all vegetation types,and always form their own societies within vascular plant societies.They are important for other organisms,By creating a special environment,they increase the species diversity in many ecosystems,Bryophytes play an important role in energy flow,nutrient cycling and water balance,It is necessary to define and emphasize the role of bryophytes in biodiversity,which has been neglected by the public,Otherwise,these highly specialized and sensitive organisms would disappear.The damaged habitat is also a main threat to bryophytes.
