Origin. and. phylogenetic. relationships. of. bryophytes. 4.1 Introduction The
origin of a land flora during the Upper Ordovician-Lower Silurian border (± 440
millions years ago) represents a significant evolutionary event in the history of life
. The subsequent evolution of a diverse autotrophic land flora created the
conditions necessary for the diversification of a terrestrial heterotrophic fauna (
Behrensmeyer et al. 1992). Today the land flora comprises roughly 300000
species distributed ...

Lam (1957) has rightly remarked that Greguss's views are based on incomplete
knowledge of the morphology of vascular plants, both living and fossil. In recent
years polyphylesis in the origin of land plants has been supported by three well
known palaeobotanists. Andrews (1956) on the basis of the occurrence of two
peculiar fossils possibly of marine algal ancestory, Nematothallus and
Crocalophyton, the latter with peculiar tra- cheid like conducting system*, and
others with cuticle ...

It is probable that these discoveries represent merely a small proportion of the
plants actually existing in the Silurian period. All the deposits of this age at
present known to us are marine; and most of them were probably formed at a
distance from land, so that it is little likely that land plants could find their way into
them. At any time the discovery of an estuarine or lacustrine deposit of Silurian
age might wonderfully extend our knowledge of this ancient flora. The Devonian
or Erian age, ...
