record size starch & altitude

Subject: BRYONET: record size starch

As an addition to the bryophytic records suggested, I have attached an article
from the Bryological Times 37 (May 1986) with a suggested record for the size of
starch grains. The same issue also suggests an altitudinal record for
bryophytes, liverworts, and lichens of 5750-6060 m on the Chile-Argentina
border. Unfortunately, no species is named.
