Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for Haller’s Apple Moss (Bartramia halleriana) in Canada

Haller's Apple Moss (Bartramia halleriana) is currently listed as Threatened under the Species at Risk Act and, in North America, is currently known only from 10 Canadian populations in western Jasper National Park and adjacent east-central British Columbia. Total population size is about 835 individuals. This moss generally occurs on low elevation (600-1600 m), mesic (moderately moist), non-calcareous cliffs, bedrock outcrops or talus (large loose rock debris at the base of a cliff), under dense forest cover. The habitat is frequently characterised by a moist, cool microclimate, influenced by seepage, nearby streams or water pools, or cold air movement through talus. The moss occurs on small ledges and in crevices in the rock.
