Mosses & Liverworts – an introduction to their identification

7 May, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 8 May, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

Bryophytes (mosses and liverworts) are small plants that are easily overlooked. Many of us enjoy the bright green carpets they form on trees and boulders, but never think much more about them. However, if you take a close look (and you know what to look for) a diverse and fascinating world is revealed. Bryophytes are a very rewarding group of plants to study, as the UK is home to over half of all Europe’s bryophyte species, and the bryophyte diversity of the south-west’s woods rival the cloud forests of the tropics.
To help with their conservation, Plantlife are offering free training for those interested in bryophytes to develop their identification skills.
If you would like to get in touch for an informal discussion about the foundation or advanced courses, please contact Alison Smith: alison.smith@plantlife.org.ukor 07889 733232.
