This boundary layer teems with lichens, mosses, ferns, fungi,and diminutive plants. It’s a universe in miniature, anunexplored territory that author Kem Luther calls the stegnon,the terrestrial equivalent of oceanic plankton. In BoundaryLayer, Luther takes a voyage of discovery through the stegnon,exploring the life forms that thrive there and introducing readers tothe scientists who study them.
