herbicides

Subject: BRYONET: Funaria hygrometrica & herbicides.

My casual observations here in New Zealand suggest that "round up' has
little effect on some bryophytes and that a few, most notably Funaria
hygrometrica, seem to thrive, and sometime establish almost a
monoculture, on bare soil after this herbicide is applied.

Cheers, Allan Fife
