This paper reviews the “state of art” in bryological research activities conducted in Nigeria. It briefly introduces bryophyte distributions, descriptions, and usages. Others are habitat types, nutrition, phytochemistry, and reproductive ecology. The significance of bryology to agriculture was reviewed. From the trend of discussion, the potential effects of agricultural activities on bryophytes were evaluated. It is therefore, evident that the state of art in bryology is moribund in Africa as a whole and Nigeria in particular as we currently have six active bryologists in Nigeria.
Key words: Nigeria, bryologist, ecology, nutrition, phytochemistry, reproduction, agriculture.
