Science at FMNH : Ep. 1 - Early Land Plants

Liverworts, hornworts and mosses may not seem like much at first glance, but big things can come in small packages!  About 450 million years ago liverworts made the jump from water to land and completely altered the evolution of life on Earth.  They can be used to assess environmental pollution, and contain chemical compounds which show activity against certain cancer cell lines and HIV.
