Record of Field Work

Field work directly related to this Report was completed in 2002, on the following dates and at the locations noted in brackets (sometimes field searches for Bryoerythrophyllum columbianum were made in addition to other work at these sites):  May 15 – 18 (south Okanagan Valley), June 14 (Cranbrook area, eastern BC), July 11-12 (Osoyoos area), July 29 – 31 (Okanagan area), August 6 – 8 (Spences Bridge area), October 18 – 20 (Kamloops area), and December 22 – 24 (south Okanagan area). One to 4 hours was spent searching at each site, depending on the size of the site.  Field work was undertaken on one additional day, January 21, 2003, in order to confirm earlier sight-only locations in the south Okanagan area, and to confirm some collections that were lost in 2001 following a survey for CDC red-listed moss species with K. Paige of the BC Ministry of Forests (these had been stored in damp condition and mosses were destroyed by fungi).
