The living skin of an actively growing bog is composed of a variety of bog mosses (Sphagnum species) each of which grows in a specific micro-habitat. Learn how to recognise some of the commonest species by their colour, structure and microscopic features. Examples will be available for examination. A binocular microscope will be provided but do bring a x20 hand lens if you have one. We shall also see some of the many life-forms that inhabit Shagnum bogs.
