Interactive video lesson plan for: The Sex Lives of Nonvascular Plants: Alternation of Generations - Crash Course Biology #36

Activity overview:

Hank introduces us to nonvascular plants - liverworts, hornworts & mosses - which have bizarre features, kooky habits, and strange sex lives. Nonvascular plants inherited their reproductive cycle from algae, but have perfected it to the point where it is now used by all plants in one way or another, and has even left traces in our own reproductive systems.
