Poem based on recent paper on how global wind systems have transported moss along Earth's latitudes!
It's not every day you find an email in your inbox with a poem based on your research!
I was honoured that my latest paper on the biogeography of Ceratodon purpureus and its spread across the globe inspired Sam Illingworth from thepoetryofscience.scienceblog.com to make this great poem :)
Thank you, Sam Illingworth!
The poem will also feature in the next episode of his podcast, to be released on 16/11/2020.
