Video Journal #5: Horseback Riding to the Serka Glacier
Prepare yourself for spectacular views of the Serka Glacier as you saddle up and head out on horseback to collect liverworts, hornworts, and mosses with Laura. This is the fifth installment in a series of video journals by botanist Laura Briscoe documenting The Field Museum’s 2013 survey of bryophytes 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.
