MaLoM! LaMoM? MoMill? BryoMill?
OK. It needs a better name, but the project has started.
In order to learn the local mosses and liverworts, I have collected and am collecting bryophytes from around campus. For example, one Saturday this past Fall we collected 10 bryophytes at the Millersville University Preserve. Once I have identified them, I will document them here on my blog as well as upload the information to Nature Atlas, our home-grown species-mapping tool.
In my past work, I have focused on population dynamics of liverworts. I think I want to move forward with a community-focused research project. But even if I focus on the population dynamics of one or two species, this will help me figure out which species.
