BRYOPHYTES (MOSSES) - THERE'S LIFE IN THE PARK
from 21 NOV 2015 to 22 NOV 2015
Bryophytes, more commonly known as mosses, are essentially terrestrial plants with various shapes, textures and even colours. Due to their small dimensions, bryophytes often go unnoticed - camouflaged or hidden in any urban or natural environment, but they nonetheless play essential roles in many ecosystems. 
In this talk, we’ll learn about the main characteristics that distinguish mosses from other groups of plants and will understand several of the applications, secrets and myths relating to these plants. In the itineraries in the Park, participants will explore the various places that have been colonised by them.

SATURDAY
15:00-16:00: Talk, ESPAÇO.PARQUE (Serralves Farm)
16:00 to 17:30: Itinerary in the Park
Talk and Itineraries: Cristiana Vieira, Helena Hespanhol (Researchers of CIBIO-InBIO - Research Centre in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources). 

SUNDAY
10:00-13:00 | WORKSHOP "MOSS UNDER THE MAGNIFYING GLASS!" 
Mosses are the most intriguing inhabitants of nature. They don’t exactly have roots, stems or leaves, and despite their apparent fragility, they’re the first organisms to colonize areas that are devoid of life. With magnifying glasses, tweezers and a watchful eye, we’ll get to know these tiny creatures in detail.
