PLEUROEURO represents an initial training network coordinated by members of PERG with the aim to cross link the fragmented expertise on moss diversity and evolution in Europe and to provide an intensive training for young researchers via specific workshops and Ph.D. projects. PLEUROEURO focusses on biodiversity assessment and species limitations in pleurocarpous mosses. It will provide new tools for species identification (barcode, web based illustrated keys etc.), bioindication and sustainable use (new cultivation protocols and harvesting rules
etc.) of pleurocarpous mosses.
