|Common Bryophytes of Second Growth Hardwood Forests|
|Common Bryophytes of Old Growth/Rich Woods|
One of the things you'll notice is that the diversity is greater in the old growth compared to second growth woods.

Of course there are many more species found than illustrated here, but these are the species you are likely to run into in these areas.
In my next post, i'll show some maps from specific places.
