Nonflowering Plants & Mushrooms of the NorthEastern US

Nonflowering Plants & Mushrooms of the NorthEastern US

Rocky places and bogs furnish good hunting because of the shade and moisture. Others live on tree bark and fallen logs. Many live together in relationships with others like fern and moss. *Edited by Project Noah management team to comply with user-created mission rules. Sign in to join mission

Nonflowering Plants & Mushrooms of the NorthEastern US
Created by


14 participants 762 spottings

Nonflowering plants (ferns, mosses, liverworts, lichens, marine algae & water ferns, hornworts, horsetails, bacteria, cycads, and Gymnosperms/confers ) & mushrooms generally go hand in hand with moisture, for their complex life cycle cannot be completed without water. Some of these lowly plants become dry and shriveled, but eventually they will be "resurrected" by rain. In just a very tiny area you can find a multitude of species like rock mosses, colorful seaweeds, and dainty ferns. Some are difficult to identify, thus look for spore stalks and other identifying marks. Note: Gymnosperms are not enclosed in fruits as they are in flowering plants. The spore-bearing leaves are produced in cones of two kinds - male and female. In some, such as junipers, podocarps, and yews, the cones may be fleshy and berry-like but neverless they are not true fruits.
