300.00.00 Bryophyta, Mosses, Spore plants.
Botany: flowers absent; seeds absent; vessels absent; simple leaves cover the thin wiry stems; producing spore capsules which may appear as beak-like capsules borne aloft on thin stalks, for reproduction.
DD: Silicon series.
There is no good name for this group. They are part of the Bryophyta, the land plants. But the Bryophyta contain also the Tracheophyta, the vascular plants. This group has not been given a name as it is not a monophyletic group because the Tracheophyta evolved out of them. On the other hand they are a distinct group.
It can be hypothetised that the 3 division of Bryophyta are expressions of the 3 series. For example it could be:
1. Hydrogen series: Anthocerotophyta: Hornworts
2. Carbon series: Marchantiophyta: Liverworts
3. Silicon series: Bryophyta in the restricted sense: Mosses
They have a simple world-view. Their own life and family is the most important issue in life. There is no concept of society and culture as being important. One can imagine the lifestyle of nomad people.
There are very few remedies and very little information in homeopathy about the mosses.
