Abstract : Moss flora in Mindanao, Mt. Pigngalngalan, Kalatungan Range is poorly known and understudied. The study aimed to record the moss species and determine its distribution with respect to its microhabitat preferences and ecological distribution. Totally, there were 38 species collected in the area, encompasses 14 families and 21 genera. Most of the species collected are found on moist rock and decayed logs. Mosses are reliable signs and indicators of air pollution as they are easy to grip and show a gigantic range of specific sensitivity and noticeable signs to pollutants and greatly exceeding that of higher plants which must be conserve for it devours the significance of environmental cause and discussed the relationship to the ecology of the species.
