About this book

Well illustrated and informative guide, covering 87 species, including 60 mosses, 23 liverworts and 4 hornworts. Informative text and keys make the book accessible to both beginners and expert bryologists. Over 440 colour photos and light micrographs, as well as numerous maps and figures are included.

"Until recently, Ascension's bryophyte flora has received little attention. However, thanks to the efforts of the authors and their infectious enthusiasm for this often overlooked group, researchers, conservation practitioners and interested individuals now have an invaluable resource to carry with them into the field. We would urge everyone to take the time to study these tiny plants and see how many you can recognise – you won't regret it!"
– Dr Nicola Weber, Head of Conservation & Dr Sam Weber, Chief Scientific Officer, Ascension Island Government Conservation Department.
