Reproductive and dispersal traits significantly differ between continental and oceanic island bryophyte floras, evidencing the evolution of island syndromes. Although the proportion of bisexual species is higher on islands than on continents, in agreement with Baker's law, significant shifts towards increased production of asexual specialized diaspores involved in short-distance dispersal, and decrease in the production of spores involved in long-distance dispersal, support the notion that long-distance dispersal capacity by wind decreases on islands.
