    This has been my desktop wallpaper for ages, it’s nice to read what it actually is.

    Nice write-up Connor. And it’s easy to see why there’s an interest in the moisture saving features of moss with water at a premium.

    I LOVE the bryophytes! And now I know what they are called. You guys always come through with such interesting stuff. Thanks!

    Amazing photography, mosses are beautiful when one can observe them real close up.

    Thanks for a great write-up! I really enjoy the occassional forays into the non-vascular, fungi, etc.

    My goodness what a lot of words I’ve never seen before. It was still interesting, even though I’m not going to learn those words. Great photo, Eric. I love how the tall bits have big water droplets and the short little bits have tiny little water droplets.

    this is an interesting close-up. bryophytes are the most interesting plant species on earth.

    you mentioned one continent no found on what is is? also how does one get rid of the moss?

  15. janis

    Yes, which continent?
    I would assume North America because I assume that’s where you are. I can certainly see how it couldn’t migrate to South America.
    Also, of course, the photograph is breath taking. the picture is now my wallpaper and I am now a bryophytofile
