About this book

Part II of Austral Hepaticae treats two of the largest and most complex suborders of the order Jungermanniales. The first suborder, the Cephaloziineae, includes some four families, of which the largest and most complex, the Cephaleziaceae, contains five subfamilies, with some 12 genera. The second suborder, the Jungermannlineae, includes some six families, ten subfamilies, and 40 genera. In total, some 69 genera are studied. As in Part I, each genus/ subgenus is illustrated with both gametophytic and sporophytic details, and usually cytological details (drawn from the living plant). Over 2700 individual figures on 224 plates, drawn (with isolated exceptions) by the author, often from living plants, have been prepared for this volume.
