Please join the Audubon Naturalist Society in welcoming Amelia Merced, Ph. D and botanist, for a presentation about the wonders of bryophytes. Bryophytes is the collective name given to the group of plants that includes mosses, liverworts and hornworts. These small plants grow on many surfaces, including soil, rocks, and the bark and leaves of other plants, and can be found in almost all environments. Using a hand lens, you can appreciate their diversity and beauty.
Amelia Merced, Ph. D manages the bryophyte collection at the USDA-FS International Institute of Tropical Forestry (IITF) in San Juan, PR.
