This volume describes 614 species of bryophytes distributed in China, including 130 species of liverworts, 477 species of mosses and 7 species of hornworts. Each species is illustrated by one or two close-up images taken in the wild and gives a concise description in both Chinese and English. The arrangement of families and genera in this book largely follows the Flora Bryophytorum Sinicorum, while the delimitation, status, distribution and habitat of the species is based on the treatments in the Flora Bryophytorum Sinicorum (Vols. 1-10), Moss Flora of China, Higher Plants of China, Volume 1, Species Catalogue of China, Volume 1 Plants, Bryophytes and recent taxonomic revisions and molecular phylogenetic articles on certain taxa. The Chinese names of the species in this book follow those in the Species Catalogue of China, Volume 1, Plant, Bryophytes. Vouchers for the photos in this book have been deposited in the relevant herbaria of the universities and institutions of the photographers.
