For those who are about to Google… Hornworts together with mosses and liverworts form the monophyletic group of bryophytes. Bryophytes are the proposed closest sister group to all other land plants (vascular plants). Thus, hornworts reside in a very important phylogenetic position with regards to our understanding of the genetic basis of land plant evolution. This talk will be a short overview of our journey to establish Anthoceros agrestis as a hornwort experimental system.
