Caption: Mnium sp. moss, light micrograph. At centre is an archegonium (orange), the female reproductive organs of the moss. It is a flask-like structure with an ovum (egg cell, dark blue) at its base. The cells above the egg cell (called canal cells) disintegrate when the egg is mature, allowing male sex cells (antherozoids, not seen) to reach it. Mosses are non-vascular plants, that is, they do not possess dedicated vessels for the transportation of water and nutrients. Because of this, they are typically small and require damp environments. Magnification: x195 when printed 10cm high.
