Mosses and Liverworts on Trees

Large White-moss by Sarah McKenzie

ERCCIS recorder workshop events scheduled to take place over the spring and summer have been postponed to keep everyone safe and well, due to medical advice and the developing path of COVID19. Please sign up to our ERCCIS Workshop News mailing list to help us to keep you updated.

After our introductory workshop on Mosses and Liverworts last year, we return to the subject to focus on ‘epiphytic bryophytes’ – those that grow on trees and other sturdy plants. Complete beginners are welcome along with those who attended last year’s workshop.

It's no secret that bryophytes aren't the easiest group to get into, but Roy Jeffery (who lead last year's workshop) breaks them down into distinct groups and focuses on key id features, at a pace suitable for complete beginners. By the end of this workshop, you will know what to look for in identifying a moss or liverwort, and be able to recognise some of the most common and distinctive species that grow on trees.
