Field Guide to Liverwort Genera of Pacific North Americaby W. B. Schofield
Synopses & Reviews
The first comprehensive guide to liverworts and hornworts from southernmost California to Alaska. Small and insignificant to the casual eye, liverworts and hornworts are sometimes confused with mosses and lichens. Yet botanically they are quite distinctive and under a hand lens, these plants can assume a surprising elegance.
Book News Annotation:
In this first comprehensive guide to liverworts and hornworts from Alaska to California, leading bryologist Schofield (emeritus, botany, U. of British Columbia) focuses on field identification by eye and hand lens, comparison with mosses, uses, and genera descriptions. Includes drawings, a glossary, and checklist of covered species. Published in association with the Global Forest Society.
