The Liverwort Flora of the British Isles

Front Cover
Harley Books, 1999 - Nature - 626 pages
The British Isles has one of the best known bryophyte floras in Europe, and the richness of the liverwort flora in western oceanic regions of Britain and Ireland is of worldwide significance. Nevertheless the extreme variability of many of the species has made identification notoriously difficult. This work is intended to enable both the amateur, whether beginner or more experienced, and the professional bryologist to determine the morphologically variable species more readily.
