About this book

Language: English

This is the first fully illustrated and complete identification guide to the hepaticae of West Africa (Mauritania to Cameroon and Rio Muni and the Gulf of Guinea Islands). Keys and descriptions are presented for the 30 families, 84 genera and 297 species of liverworts and hornworts recorded from the region. The flora also provides an introduction to the morphology of these organisms and explains how to collect and study them. Not only is it a valuable source of information on the relationships and the morphology of these species, it also gives information on habitat and distribution useful for ecologists and conservationists.
