Ecological parameter: LANDOLT Bryophytes - moisture Switzerland (Alpine region)

Parameter group: habitat related parameters

The moisture value indicates the average soil moisture during the growth period in places where the species most frequently occurs. Low values indicate low soil moisture and high values high soil moisture.
