Workshop: Identification of the Bryophytes • Crawford County

Saturday, Apr 2nd, 2011 to Sunday, Apr 3rd, 2011 @ 8:30am-4pm
Pittsburg State University • Dept of Biology, Heckert/Wells Hall Room 305 • Pittsburg, KS • Map

Bryophytes are Mosses, Liverworts and Hornworts. On Saturday, April 2, the workshop will focus on general characteristics used for the identification of bryophytes. Handouts with illustrations and keys will be provided. On Sunday, April 3, a field trip will allow participants to see a variety of mosses and some liverworts in native habitat (sturdy shoes are recommended for walking over rock). If anyone wants to bring specimens for identification, I will be happy to collect them and key them at a later date, then return the ids to the collector. All specimens will be accessioned into the herbarium. Be sure you provide date of collection, location, county, state, and most importantly, habitat. Registration is required. Contact Dr. Timme to register. A minimum of 5 participants is required to hold the class.
