About this book

The classic guide to the bryophytes of the West (originally published in 1988) is back in print. This book brings the small yet beautiful world of mosses, liverworts, lichens, and ferns to those interested in understanding more about their surroundings. These plants are relatively inconspicuous plants which nonetheless play significant roles in the ecology of forests and tundra.

Over 370 species are dealt with in the text, each illustrated in color. The species included are representative of the area covered, which extends from Alaska to southern Oregon and from the Pacific Ocean to Montana and Saskatchewan.
