Moss on Mescalito
Moss on the walls of the back side of Mescalito Peak in Red Rocks, Nevada.
September 2007.

Mosses require moisture to survive because of the small size and thinness of tissues, lack of waxy covering to prevent water loss, and the need for liquid water to complete fertilisation. Some mosses can survive desiccation and return to life within a few hours of rehydration.
