In present-day afforestation much attention is devoted to the wild plants as indicating soil and climatic conditions, but within recent times the ordinary mosses have been proved to be just as important. In the following notes an effort will be made, first to give a life history of a moss, secondly to indicate, as far as present knowledge permits, the soil and climatic conditions under which particular mosses are found and thirdly to illustrate each of these by means of photographs. The mosses selected are those which a forester is likely to meet frequently in the course of his work and so to use in assessing locality conditions.
