Bryophytes Part 1: Our common mosses

Wednesday February 5 from 6:30 – 9pm

WWU Biology Building Room 249

Don’t you wish you had more plants to ID in the wintertime? Well, if you can get familiar with the bryophytes you’ll have plenty to keep you busy! This week, Katrina will get us started with bryophytes by providing an overview of moss anatomy, terminology to help with identification, and a sampling of the most common and easily identified moss species of our region. Take advantage of this opportunity to use the microscopes in the biology lab — it is hard to identify mosses without them.
