This app is primarily a field guide to the Sphagnum mosses found in the Peak District National Park and South Pennines and focuses on 12 of the species that you are most likely to see. It also covers several other common moss species, along with some of the more striking lichen and liverwort species you are likely to encounter.
Often overlooked, Sphagnum mosses form a critical part of the moorland ecosystem and have a unique beauty. Their shape, colour and growth form all hold clues as to their identity and this app will help you to identify them to species level using filters, text and beautiful photographs.
The app also provides information about the work being done by the Moors for the Future Partnership within the MoorLIFE project and how this is helping to restore and preserve moorland habitats of European importance.
