In my function of trustee and co-website editor, I was able to take part and co-lead the development of a major website for the British Bryological Society (BBS). The new website significantly improves the design, navigation, accessibility, functionality, SEO, and content, in comparison to our previous website – altogether strongly contributing to delivering the mission of the Society: promote a wider interest in all aspects of bryology.
But what is bryology???
Bryology is the study of bryophytes, also known in English as mosses, liverworts and hornworts and the best way to find out more is to head straight away to the relevant page of our new website!
I expect most people will fall in love with the featured photography and these tiny plants, but you will also found a wealth of scientific resources about bryophytes on the new website. There is more than one page per day in the year, each contains expert knowledge about bryophytes, about the Society itself… and even the lives of bygone bryologists.
The new website was developed in close collaboration with Castlegate IT, a York-based web developer specialised in fully bespoke WordPress sites. They provide more details about the BBS-Castlegate IT collaboration on a page you’ll access following this link.
