BRYONET: Fall workshop

BRYONET
There are still spaces available in my workshop September 30 through
October 3 at the Andrews Experimental Forest in the Oregon Cascades.
Please contact me directly if you are interested.
ADVANCED FIELD BRYOLOGY. September 30--October 3. This
year's advanced workshop is completely new: I have reserved space in
the fall at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest near the McKenzie
River:

We will study together, go in the field together, live together, and
cook together for four days. It is designed for people who have had
previous training in bryology. The location and time of year will
allow us to visit montane wetlands of the High Cascades. In addition
to field competence, this workshop emphasizes developing microscope
skills and mastering the specialized terminology necessary to use
technical keys to identify bryophytes. The field trip will provide
fresh material to supplement dried herbarium specimens. Participants
are encouraged to bring up to a dozen of their own unknowns for
supervised independent study. Bring more if ready to work evenings.
Keying liverworts will focus on Doyle and Stotler's 2006 keys to
California liverworts, supplemented by my CD, Liverworts of Oregon.
Norris and Shevock's 2004 keys will be emphasized for mosses.
