Bryophytes of Andhra Pradesh is the result of extensive field trips and laboratory students undertaken on bryophytes of Andhra Pradesh. The information of such a work usually gets limited to various periodicals/journals and not easily accessible. In order to make better use of this dispersed information, we have made an attempt to consolidate it in the form of a book. The approach adapted, presents information in an easy – to grasp form so that it could be understood not only by specialist, but also by the students and stimulate at least handful of them to take it up for further research.
The present work includes taxonomic observation, diversity, distribution, habitat, ecology and discussion of 94 species, 67 genera belonging to 36 families. Under each family key to the genera, followed by the genus with its authority, key to the species and species enumeration is given. All the genera in the family and all the species in the genus are arranged in alphabetical order. All the keys are of the dichotomous indented type. The nomenclature is brought up-to-date. Species enumeration is with citation, description and phonological data. This is supported by 92 line drawings and 12 plates of photographs.
Bryophytes of Andhra Pradesh is written to provide a frame work for learning and understanding the bryophytes of Andhra Pradesh in a way emphasizing the uniqueness of this work.
