Flexi Says: Nonvascular plants are bryophytes. They include mosses, liverworts, and hornworts. Bryophytes occupy niches in moist habitats, but, as they lack vascular tissue, they are not very efficient at absorbing water. However, moss have multicellular rhizoids that are more like roots. They also have tiny, photosynthetic structures similar to leaves that encircle a central stem-like structure.
