Moss is at the origin of life on Earth and it has helped develop multiple different ecosystems since its appearance 450 million years ago. It’s biology fascinates scientists: it has no roots, no seeds, no flowers, no vascular system and a very primitive reproductive system. It’s basically immortal, as it has survived extinctions, climatic tragedy, volcanic eruptions, even nuclear contamination, and can regenerate indefinitely.
We travel to Japan, Iceland, France, Ireland and Spain to meet experts who study moss for various disciplines: biotechnology, climatology, nuclear contamination, and evolutionary biology.
Visually moss covered landscapes are absolutely stunning and mysterious, and offer a great background to tell our story.
