BRYONET: Bryonet: bryophytes and the regulation of water flow



Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of a reference about
the water holding capacity of bryophytes and its relationship to
regulating ecosystem water flow? I can't seem to find a reference in
support of the role bryophytes play in regulating water flow, which
rather surprised me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.
