About this book

Language: Spanish

To the uninitiated, tropical mosses may all look alike and exhibit few features that can distinguish them apart. There are 2,500 or more species in the Neotropics, and given that fact, there must obviously be many characters to define and separate them. This illustrated glossary is intended to assist students and naturalists in learning the basic morphological terms used in the identification of neotropical mosses. Glosario Ilustrado para Musgos Neotropicales is divided into three chapters. The first is an alphabetical glossary containing 419 basic terms and definitions accompanied by 254 illustrations by E. Calzadilla. The second part contains 28 subchapters arranged by morphology in a sequence that found in a basic moss description, e.g., habit, stems, leaves, cells, sexuality, setae, capsules, peristome etc. These subchapters provide terms and definitions for 28 major characters and their character states (variation) and are complemented with 41 illustrated plates. The last part, divided into 17 subchapters, provides a discussion and taxonomic importance of characters used in the identification of mosses with examples given from neotropical families, genera and species. This illustrated glossary should promote a better means in understanding and learning the morphology of mosses, and enhance the capacity to identify mosses.
