Identification Basics for Bryophytes Video

This the second video in the series Looking Down by Lena Coleman, a graduate student at California State University Northridge.

This video teaches the basics of identifying bryophytes. She walks through the different growth forms and puts them in the larger picture of land plant evolution. The transitions and graphics are really sharp. The different parts of the moss plants are covered in more detail, with zoomed in shots and definitions for the different terms. (One typo - Calyptra is spelled without an e.) 

The guide is good for orientating novices who are just beginning to explore the diversity of mosses. 

The video can be played by clicking on the video below or on YouTube through this link.
