Mosses might be thought of as the most 'worthless' of plants, as we don’t use them for food, clothing, shelter or medicines. Not many animals munch on mosses either. So what, if anything, are mosses good for? Dr Shaun Russell is the Director of Treborth Botanic Garden and has studied mosses throughout his career. His talk will highlight the often quirky and surprising ways in which mosses have been useful to humans over the centuries, and their fundamental role in the “economy of nature”".
