Erica Scourti Profile by George Vasey
Littleness Mosses are actually very successful plants and represent a different, rather than lesser, way of life. Their simple structures limit where they can grow they can only grow where conditions suit them - but they are also able to grow in places where other plants can’t, for example, on rocks and other hard surfaces like bark, bricks, slate roofs, etc. Many mosses have evolved desiccation tolerance, and can withstand periods without water, beginning growth again after re-wetting.
