Yes, I can add similar observations from Germany, where most bryophytes on
stubble fields and wineyards usually do well after the concurrence of
phanerogams is omitted by herbicides. Phascum cuspidatum, Tortula truncata,
Barbula convoluta, B. unguiculata, Bryum rubens, B. bicolor and Dicranella
staphylina are the most common examples.

Best wishes
