The main adaptations of nonvascular plants are;

  • The non-vascular plant usually grows in the moist and shady places.
  • The moist environment is essential for easy uptake of the water since they lack the vascular tissues like the xylem and the phloem.
  • The plants possess rhizoids, stem and leaf like structures.
  • In the non-vascular plants the gametophytic generation is prominent.
  • The sporophyte grows as a parasite on the gametophyte.
  • The water stored in plants evaporates slowly so that it maintains the moist environment.
  • They reproduce by both asexually and sexually.
