The Liverworts of Britain and Ireland
This generously illustrated flora embodies the most recent information and ideas in liverwort taxonomy. Written in the same format as Dr Smithas widely acclaimed Moss Flora of Britain and Ireland, it provides descriptions of all the liverworts known to occur in Great Britain and Ireland, together with keys to their identification and a glossary. As the only recent comprehensive European liverwort flora written in English and suitable for use in much of Europe (and also, incidentally, in eastern North America), this book will be an essential reference for all those interested in this fascinating group of plants.
