The Mosses and Liverworts of Pembrokeshire
Written in an accessible and colloquial style, this new publication includes expansive accounts for all 534 bryophyte species recorded in Vice-county 45, including tetrad distribution maps based on visits to every Pembrokeshire tetrad, and plots of altitudinal range and sporophyte timing. The ecology of species is covered in greater depth than in most comparable county bryophyte Floras. The introductory chapters, which account for over 100 pages, cover the history of bryophyte recording in the county, comparisons with the adjacent Vice-counties of Carmarthenshire and Cardiganshire as well as with the more distant but ecologically similar Cornwall and Caernarvonshire, the biogeography of Pembrokeshire bryophytes and their occurrence in broad habitats, accounts of declining and increasing species, and a review of SSSI bryophyte features in the county.
