We have a new addition to our lists of biota of the BFS – a preliminary list of bryophytes, including 10 types of moss and 4 different liverworts. The list was generated by an introductory level bryophytes class offered on February 20-21, 2016, by the Rancho Sanata Ana Botanic Garden and taught by Dr. Paul S. Wilson, California State University, Northridge. Mosses and liverworts were identified visually in the field with the aid of a hand lens; consequently this is very preliminary list, and definitive identification will require more detailed study, which we hope to be able to do in the future.
