produced by a team of expert bryologists, this is the only modern field guide to mosses and liverworts of Britain and Ireland, enabling you to identify many of them with a hand lens in the field.
The guide helps you to find out:
what mosses and liverworts look like -
- photographs of whole plants
-higher magnification drawings and photographs of important distinguishing features
how to identify them -
- notes for identifying and distinguishing from similar species
- a field key and picture galleries directing you to the part of the field guide featuring the plant you are trying to identify
where they grow
- habitat notes help you decide if you have correctly identified a plant
The illustrations and non-technical descriptions and keys are invaluable aids to identification for beginners, while experienced bryologists will wish to carry the guide as an aide-memoire.
