Asia and the world with specific literature reference(s) and critical notes on taxonomy and geography of a taxon wherever necessary. The book also contains lists of 200 taxa endemic to India and 563 taxa so far recorded from various in situ conservation sites of the country with state/protected area wise distribution respectively, and comments on 110 taxa which have been either excluded from the Indian bryoflora or considered as doubtful.

The checklist is unique in providing complete list of synonymy and information on geography of taxa at local, sub-regional, national, regional and global level, and clearly stands out in this aspect from other similar treatises.
