In recent years, research on the environmental response of mosses and on the conservation of biodiversity, particularly in urban areas that reflect greater human activity, is gaining attention. A series of research studies on mosses in urban settings have revealed that in areas of greenery, factors such as size, management methods and soil history, as well as the diversity of a local micro-environment, all have an acute impact on the growth of mosses. Interestingly, this research has shown that of all the different types of urban greenery, the traditional Japanese garden, in particular, preserves a high diversity of moss species.
