BRYONET

It appears that at least six species of mosses have been found in
association with Otzi, the 5300 frozen mummy from Tyrol in the Italian
Alps found. Otzi has commonly been referred to as the Iceman. I have
found the Otzi saga quite interesting to follow since his first
discovery in 1991.

A recent article in National Geographic recounts these bryological
finds.
