About this book

Written in the same format as Moss Flora of Britain and Ireland, this completely new and highly illustrated flora embodies the most recent information and ideas in liverwort taxonomy. Although the descriptions
cover all the liverworts known to occur in Britain and Ireland, it will also be suitable for use in much of Europe, and eastern North America. Illustrated throughout with line diagrams. An important reference.
