Abstract

(1) Seasonal patterns of growth of five bryophyte species were investigated in an area of north-facing calcareous grassland in North Derbyshire. Simultaneous measurements of dry weight and shoot length were possible by the use of a new experimental field technique. (2) Marked differences in relative growth rate occurred between the species and uncoupling between growth in length and in dry weight was observed.
