Interested in bog mosses?

Produced in association with the Moors For The Future partnership, IUCN and the Heather Trust, this new fold-out chart fulfils the need for a straightforward photographic identification guide to the more important Sphagnum mosses found growing in bogs throughout the UK.

Specially taken photographs of the leaves and shoots of each species are accompanied by further ID notes in the text (including guidance on commonly confused species), a guide to the major colours of each species and scale. Text on the reverse side covers the formation, importance and restoration of Sphagnum bogs.

This chart is part of the FSC's range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it shower-proof and robust for use outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.

The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
