Where do the Mosses and Lichens Live?

All of the photographs that I have posted thus far, excluding the photo of Funaria hygrometrica, are of mosses and lichens growing at the James L. Goodwin State Forest in Hampton, Connecticut. It is one of the places where I lead moss walks during the summer. I went for a hike there a couple of weeks ago and took the pictures that I have been posting. So if you are interested in seeing these creatures in the flesh it is a nice place to visit. It is also a great place to go canoeing! (My shameless plug for the free and open to the public state forest.) When I was out canoing we spotted mosses growing on the logs and tree branches sticking out of the middle of the lake, which was very cool. I don't have any pictures of them, but if I am out on the lake again I will be sure to take some.

  1. I think I have a picture of one of them. I'll have to check. Stay tuned.
