Bog Life workshop: David Goode
18th January 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The living skin of an actively growing bog is composed of a variety of bog mosses (Sphagnum species) each of which grows in a specific micro-habitat. You will learn how to recognise some of the commonest species of bog moss by their colour, structure and microscopic features. Examples will be available for examination by hand lens, or binocular microscope (provided). Bring a x20 lens if you have one. We shall also see some of the many life-forms that inhabit Sphagnum leaves, possibly including ‘water bears’
