About this book

This is a book for those who are just beginning to look at these fascinating plants as well as for those who didn't even know these plants existed. As the author demonstrates, the complexity, diversity, and beauty of liverworts make them absorbing objects of study and research.

In explanations that do not intimidate or oversimplify, the author describes the nearly 200 species in 62 genera found in diverse habitats throughout the six New England states. Features that can be seen with a hand lens are emphasized, sop that curious naturalists will not need a compound microscope.

Color photographs, line drawings, distribution maps, and simple keys assist in the identification of common species, and a helpful glossary of terms is also included.
