I had a super time at the BBS AGM at Preston Montford.
I came home with four new books and some interesting facts lodged in my head:
- woodlice eat gemmae (vegetative reproductive structures) on mosses and liverworts
- there are no bryophyte records for Burkina Faso
- ancient Paramo jackets are de rigeur amongst bryologists (so I fit right in…)
- it is completely normal for bryologists to buy books on the bryophytes of places they may never go to – a sort of bryological tourism!
Perhaps I should’ve bought those books on the bryology of Tierra del Fuego and the Antarctic 😀
