Interview with Robin Wall Kimmerer
By Skye Rohde
Oswego, NY – Mosses are the most primitive of all land plants. Rarely more than an inch tall, they're considered the "amphibians" of the plant world.
Robin Wall Kimmerer, a professor at the College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, has looked at mosses through a hand-lens for more than 30 years. In her new book "Gathering Moss," she blends scientific description with her indigenous heritage to understand the role mosses play in their environment.
