Bryophyta can survive both on land and water. These are also called amphibians of the plant kingdom as they live on soil but need water for reproduction. For example, mosses.

The sperm of bryophyte (antherozoids) are flagellate and need water to swim to the eggs. In other words, as these plants need water for reproduction unlike other plants, they are called as amphibians. Amphibians are those organisms which live on both land and in water.
