Investigating a mat of moss.
Under the bigger microscope.
Rhizoids are moss roots. They are as thin as a strand of hair.
We found 2 different kinds of moss in the yard.
Moss between paving stones.
Some moss grows in mounds, while others are more mat-like.
This moss has sent up the slender stalks with the capsules, called sporangia, on top which contain the spores.
