Even so, in highly favorable conditions of water availability, the Bryales (the typical mosses) may grow surprisingly fast: for example, on Devon Island in the Canadian Arctic archipelago, a specimen of Meesia triquetra living in a favorable site (near a watercourse) was observed to grow 1.
Deposits of the Younger Dryas stadial (GS-1) are represented by grey and greenish-grey silt with fine-grained sand interlayers and remains of Bryales moss corresponding to the Artemisia-Betula nana pollen zone defined by Pin-as & Raukas (1996).
