    "Tb" is used as an abbreviation for "temperature" in scientific fields a great deal, such as ∆Tb, or "change in temperature," etc . . .

    If you did a Google search, try "Tb, temperature" . . .

    I did, and couldn't find anything. That's why I was hoping for a link to a source. Ah well.

    It has been used for decades in scientific equations, journals, etc., and was regularly used in every course I've taken in chemistry, physics, ecology, botany, cell and molecular biology, zoölogy, marine biology, quantitative analysis, ad nauseum. Here is an arbitrary link to some agro paper:

    agron.scijournals.org/cgi/reprint/97/3/943.pdf in which the abbreviation appears. If you're looking for etymology, I am sure that you can find a source . . .

    BigBella: I went PETCO and bought New Zealand Sphagnum moss from the reptile section. Do you think there is any difference from this one to the one they sell at Lowes or places like that?

    maybe supply and demand jag. i would say it's no different than the NZS that you'd buy from let's say an orchid shop---but because of the market that it caters to, they're going to hike up that price.

    If you're sure that it's NZ sphagnum, that's great; but not every source for moss is reputable, so be careful . . .

    That stuff at Petco is way over priced.

    I wasn't even aware that they carried that product. For reptile environments?
