A field guide to the mosses, liverworts and hornworts of cultivated land in Britain and Ireland.
This book is being produced to highlight the conservation importance of the mosses, liverworts and hornworts that are found on cultivated land. These plants may be tiny and unobtrusive, but close examination reveals their true beauty. The stunning photographs will surely inspire an increased level of interest in this relatively little-known group and enable even the novice bryologist to gain a better insight into the rich diversity of our bryophyte flora. The book includes an introduction to the mosses, liverworts and hornworts associated with cultivated land with information on the 81 bryophytes found in arable fields. Superb close-up photographs and illustrations showing the key features are also included.
