Video Journal #3: Heading out to Sea
Trace the travels of Charles Darwin as you sail through the Beagle Channel with Laura—and her dolphin escort! This is the third installment in a series of video journals by botanist Laura Briscoe documenting The Field Museum’s 2013 survey of bryophytes (mosses, liverworts, and hornworts) along remote islands in Chile's Cape Horn Archipelago.
You'll be surprised to discover the critical role these tiny plants play in establishing healthy soil, water, and air, and you'll learn how Field Museum scientists are working to conserve their rare and fragile habitat.
