Though diminutive in stature, mosses are integral to the ecology of our forests, providing breeding grounds for the four-toed salamander and shelter and food for small mammals, spiders, and insects. Dr. Scott Schuette presents an overview of the structure, biology, and habitat requirements for both common and unique species of mosses. Discover the beauty, ecological benefits, and fascinating life cycle of these amazing plants.
