We are pleased to announce the first of a series of comprehensive field training and identification guides. This first guide, in three parts, describes Sphagnum mosses. It is broken into three parts, Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. Part 1 (Basic) introduces Sphagnum and describes key characteristics, habitat and identification features along with 7 of the more common, easily-identifiable examples.
Part 2 introduces a further 5 species, which are perhaps a little less common. It also updates the firt batch with further, more detailed information and brings in variations.
These guides are fully illustrated with slide shows illustrating all the key features and habitats.
We intend, in the near future, to produce these in hard copy too.
The Basic & Intermediate guides start here ...
