This book describes and illustrates in detail the 760 species of
mosses currently known to occur in the British Isles and
incorporates the most up-to-date information available on
classification and nomenclature, together with recent synonyms. The
species descriptions provide information on frequency, ecology,
geographical relationships and distribution, including information
on protected species and those species at risk. For many species
there are footnotes to aid identification. In addition to the
species descriptions there are descriptions of families and genera
and also introductory information on conservation, collection,
preservation and examination of material, together with advice on
using the keys. An artificial key to genera provides the only
workable comprehensive key published in the English language. This
second edition incorporates the very considerable advances in our
knowledge of mosses made in the last quarter of the twentieth
century and will provide a unique resource for all concerned with
these fascinating organisms.
