Tiny forests

Miniature Forests of Cape Horn: Ecotourism with a Hand Len bookcoverRicardo Rozzi, professor of philosophy and religion studies, is a co-author of the new guidebook Miniature Forests of Cape Horn: Ecotourism with a Hand Lens (UNT Press/Ediciones Universidad de Magallanes).

The book explores the diversity of species of mosses, liverworts and lichens that grow on and around trees and rocks in the southernmost end of Chile. These diverse, colorful organisms create their own "miniature forests" that can be explored for hours by tourists with a magnifying glass or camera.

The bilingual, full-color book was written by an interdisciplinary team from UNT, the University of Connecticut, the Chilean Universidad de Magallanes and other researchers who work in the Sub-Antarctic Biocultural Conservation Program — for which Rozzi serves as director.
