A detailed review of the distribution, ecology and conservation status of threatened mosses and liverworts (bryophytes) in Ireland. Identification notes are provided for all of the species that are treated in detail, as well as distribution maps and photographs. Introductory chapters cover the habitats of Irish bryophytes, the history of bryophyte recording in Ireland, background to the fieldwork behind this book and a summary of the most important areas for bryophytes in Ireland. A Red List for the entire bryophyte flora is provided. The book results from a collaborative programme of research by the National Parks and Wildlife Service in the Republic of Ireland and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. It is intended to set the Irish bryophytes in a European and global context, and to provide a scientifically based foundation for future bryophyte conservation in Ireland, as well as a platform for further studies of the Irish bryophyte flora.
