About this book

Please note that the publisher informed us that their remaining stock suffers from slight imperfections due to a printing error. This involves slight clipping to the numbers at the top of the field key, which does not affect the book’s usefulness.

The want of a field guide has for many years greatly hindered further spread of interest in British and Irish field bryology. By filling this gap in the market, the guide will make a group that has largely been the realm of specialists into an accessible and popular interest for naturalists, reaching far beyond the current pool of bryologists, and into the wider community of naturalists beyond.

This book is the only up-to-date, user-friendly guide to identifying British and Irish bryophytes in the field, with
- hundreds of colour photographs and black and white drawings showing what species look like, both as whole plants and with distinguishing features magnified
- notes on how to identify and to distinguish from similar species, with a field key and picture galleries directing you to the part of the guide featuring the plant you are trying to identify
- distribution maps and habitat notes, which will help you to decide whether you have correctly identified a plant.
