Boundary Layer

Exploring the Genius Between Worlds

Oregon State University Press
In atmospheric science, a boundary layer is the air layer where the
ground comes into contact with the air, where daily fluctuations in
temperature and moisture are transferred to or from the surface of the
earth. This boundary layer teems with lichens, mosses, ferns, fungi,
and diminutive plants. It’s a universe in miniature, an
unexplored territory that author Kem Luther calls the stegnon,
the terrestrial equivalent of oceanic plankton. In Boundary
, Luther takes a voyage of discovery through the stegnon,
exploring the life forms that thrive there and introducing readers to
the scientists who study them.
Naturalist and writer Kem Luther is the author of
Cottonwood Roots and The Next Generation Gap. He
lives on Vancouver Island.
