About this book

Language: French

Bryophytes are found everywhere in France, from the plains to the highest peaks of the Alps and the Pyrenees. They play a major role in many ecosystems, especially peatlands and forests, where they represent a very large part of the biomass. Bryophytes are also excellent bioindicators of the quality of natural habitats. They make it possible to refine the characterization of many types of vegetation dominated by flowering plants.

Accessible to all, this field guide allows teachers, students or naturalists to take their first steps in the field of bryology. The advantages of this book:
- updated data on the biology and ecology of mosses and liverworts
- keys allowing the identification of about 200 species easily observed in France
- 400 species of bryophytes are mentioned, of which about 200 (the most common) are the subject of detailed entries
- the 12 protected species in France are also presented in detail and their distribution is indicated on maps
- an illustrated glossary to become familiar with the specific vocabulary for the study of bryophytes.

Summary in French:
Les bryophytes se rencontrent partout en France, des plaines aux plus hauts sommets des Alpes et des Pyrénées. Elles jouent un grand rôle dans de nombreux écosystèmes, notamment les tourbières et les forêts, où elles représentent une part très importante de la biomasse. Les bryophytes sont également d’excellentes bioindicatrices de la qualité des habitats naturels. Elles permettent d’affiner la caractérisation de nombreux types de végétations dominées par les plantes à fleurs.

Accessible à tous, ce livre de terrain permet aux enseignants, aux étudiants ou aux simples amoureux de la nature de faire leurs premiers pas dans le domaine de la bryologie.

Les plus de cet ouvrage:
- des données actualisées sur la biologie et l’écologie des mousses et des hépatiques
