Between four and five of the bryophyte classes of aquaporin are found in angiosperms, and it has been proposed that the GIP and HIP classes were lost in paired leaf seed plants (Dicotyledonae), while the XIP class was further lost in single seed leaf plants (Monocotyledonae) (Danielson and Johanson, 2008).
