About this book

Language: French

This work is the first volume in a series to appear devoted to the bryophytes of France, a reference long-awaited by botanists. With 1320 species, France is the country in Europe that is home to the richest bryoflora and yet no recent work has been devoted to it. This first volume presents 312 liverworts, including 85 thallous liverworts and 227 leafy liverworts, and 5 hornworts.

This new Flore des Bryophytes aims to allow all naturalists to name all the species of mosses, liverworts and hornworts encountered in the metropolitan area. Illustrated identification keys allow access to the different taxonomic ranks: families, genera, species. After a general description of each family, the species are the subject of a complete record: description, chorology, altitudinal spread, distribution, advice for identification in the field, habitats, syntaxons and sociology, etc. The work benefits from an abundant and original iconography, each species is presented in its habitat, but microscopic criteria are illustrated (spores, sections of leaves / tillers).

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage est le premier tome d’une série à paraître consacrée aux Bryophytes de France, une référence particulièrement attendue par tous les botanistes. Avec 1320 espèces, la France est le pays d’Europe qui abrite la bryoflore la plus riche et pourtant aucun ouvrage récent n’y est consacré. Ce premier volume présente 312 Hépatiques, dont 85 hépatiques à thalle et 227 hépatiques à feuilles, et 5 Anthocérotes.

Cette nouvelle Flore des Bryophytes ambitionne de permettre à l’ensemble des naturalistes de nommer toutes les espèces de Mousses, Hépatiques ou Anthocérotes rencontrées sur le territoire métropolitain. Des clés d’identification illustrées permettent  d’accéder aux différents rangs taxonomiques : familles, genres, espèces. Après une description générale de chaque famille, les espèces font l’objet d’une fiche complète : description, chorologie, amplitude altitudinale, répartition, conseils pour l’identification sur le terrain, habitats, syntaxons et sociologie… L’ouvrage bénéficie d’une iconographie abondante et originale, chaque espèce est présentée dans son habitat, de même que les critères microscopiques sont illustrés (spores, coupes de feuilles/talles, …).
