Magic world at the forest floor
The forest floor harbors a wonderful array of less showy plants, such as bryophytes and lichens. Their beauty, however, is most often only revealed at a closer look. To former members of the Nees Institute Frank Bungartz and Dorothee Killmann provide a short introduction in the frame of the scientific program Leonardo (WDR5). Tune in!
In addition Brigitte Osterath compiled a nice webpage on lichens hosted by the Deutsche Welle.
