Pratt, Donald B. [1].

Bryology as a Teaching Tool for Undergraduate Students.

Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA) is located in Nacogdoches, in the Pineywoods region of Deep East Texas, the region that borders Louisiana.  This region of Texas is rich in Bryophyte diversity (including representatives of all three Bryophyte Divisions).  The Bryophytes of the Pineywoods are physiologically active throughout the relatively mild and rainy winter season and actively produce sporophytes from February to April.  This poster presents the results of an Independent Research course of Freshman and upper division students who were required to collect, key, identify, and curate Bryophyte specimens and discusses the use of Bryophyte field work as a tool for Botanical Pedagogy.
